Absorption of 3D Objects

How would one go about computing square footage when attempting to calculate absorption for a 3 dimensional object, like a piece of furniture?

For example, imagine a bedroom dresser, 4' x 3' x 2', the back of which is against a wall, and the base of which lies flush with the floor. Would one use the total exposed square footage (12 + 8 + 8 + 6 = 34)?

A brief answer, it requires a dimensional analysis. The testing usually performed (mount A) sidesteps this by incorporating the added benefit as an absorption above 1.
