"Adult bean bags" is the best way to describe 'To Become One.' To Become One is a set of tables and chairs designed by Studio Erwin Zwiers and inspired by the sand at the beach. The chairs and tables consist of a soft and malleable bag and a stiff wooden frame. The soft cushion and the hard frame together create a chair or table, becoming one and giving the set its name.

The idea behind the set is that the cushions soft and squishy characteristics will make it open to play and therefore more relaxing than other types of furniture. The designers imagine these unique tables and chairs in office meeting rooms. While beanbag chairs would look wholly unprofessional in any office, the same can't be said about To Become One. Being able to rest your head or wring your hands on a soft and malleable surface would undoubtedly help employees burnt out from a long and stressful meeting.
