A circle of bulk order budget grade stackable conference room chairs with white-flecked black-cushioned metal frames, powder-coated black. They have extra wide seat dimensions and can be made to slot together to form a chain. There are approximately 20 chairs set out and people have begun entering the room and selecting their position within the layout. Nobody has offered any instruction. Some people are presenting their faces to the group, ready for conversation. Others are holding their attention close to their bodies or beyond the room. There is a table with jugs of water and glasses to the side of the room which a few people have helped themselves to.
