A review like this could certainly be effective, but I think in order to do it properly and make it worth while you would have to do several tests with different groups of chairs/categories, and then have a cumulative review of all of them for things like build quality, stability, and all other characteristics that can be applied to any chair.
That's Ok, sounds like the fans labs all over again and they pulled that one off without many hitches.
