I saw this rather sad-looking chair in a lab down the hall from me.

Why is it enshrouded in a very “fashionable” black trash bag embellished with bright green labeling tape?

Well, this is one way to make a cloth chair usable in a lab that works with biohazardous materials. In case some of the biohazardous material (like blood) is splashed on the chair, the plastic allows for easy cleaning and decontamination. If the biohazard would land on cloth, it would just soak into the fabric. Not a desirable situation in a research laboratory.

Although functional, I think I might have gone with a little more label tape. You know, to really make a statement. 🙂
