Spanish designers Irene Chércoles Mercader and Andrea Mauri Carbonell created this ultra comfy napping chair that aims to provide a cozy seat for the public. While benches and other stiff seating areas exist in public spaces, this chair aims to provide a more relaxing option.

The napping chair is also a rocking chair and it is cleverly titled 'Nap.' It is made of anodized aluminum, multiple pieces of nylon tape and rubber protectors. The nylon is wrapped around the aluminum frame to create a bouncy seat that rocks back and forth. The nylon is colored a bright red to attract the public and encourage them to take a seat.

The ultimate goal for this project is to place this chair in various locations around Spain. By providing people with a unique and comfortable seat, they are likely to enjoy a small moment of relaxation before continuing their day.
