The SeesawSeat by Dirk van Amstel Ploos is a transforming piece of children's furniture that can change from a bench to a teeter-totter and back again. A playful design, it appeals to a child's sense of imagination in a way that confirms it and helps to develop it. Children live in a world where anything is possible and this seat shows that is not such a foolish belief.

A minimalist design, the SeesawSeat by Dirk van Amstel Ploos is made out of round-edged wood planks that have been slotted together in such a way that it can easily shift from bench to teeter-totter in seconds. More than that, van Amstel Ploos prides himself on drawing people closer to the product by making the mechanics of it visible to the naked eye.
