{quSlab} ("bench") makes sense from an in-world perspective, as it includes the syllable {quS} ("chair"). However, I wonder if it could simultaneously be a pun on "slab", which is "a large, flat piece of solid material".

This is brilliant. "Harold Arlen" = "Har A." = {Har'ey} and "E.Y.
Harburg" = "E.Y. Har" = {Har'ey}.
