The age-old question. You've just sat down at a restaurant or cafe and you want a safe place to put your bag. You could stuff it in a corner, or put it on the floor and cover it with your jacket, but neither really keeps the bag from being easily snatched away during a moment of inattention.

But it doesn't have to stay that way. A group of british designers working with the Police in London and New York have gone and designed furniture with security on the mind. The group, Design Against Crime, have produced a number of prototypes like the above chair which looks like your average Scandinavian chair, except that, oh wait, it has a nice little hook to hang your bag on. And we gotta say, if security minded furniture design is the way of the future, we sure hope it looks along these lines...
