The Harry seat is a new design from Stockholm-based Massproductions. A curved lower piece of wood comes up on both sides and is met by a simple seat that slides into place. The Harry seat is a cross between a stool and a bench (for one).
Massproductions follows a long Swedish tradition of simple minimalist furniture. You can see more of Massproductions work (including the Harry seat) at their site.
