The Twin Bench Brings Playfulness to the Practicality of Home Furnishings

Adults can play too, and this is encouraged by the designer of the Twin Bench. Andrea Rekalidis has developed a minimalist seating system that is anything but simple in use, allowing a pair of people to sit together and experience a gentle sway.

Caught somewhere between a rocking horse and a rocking chair, this lovely lumber contraption is manufactured from a pale panel of wood on top and contrasting dark pieces for a base. It can be set up with or without the curved tracks, providing a stable perch or an oscillating one, depending on preference.

An additional configuration modifies the Twin Bench so that the legs support the ends of the plank. In the same way, you're left with a stationary or a swaying seat for one or two people.
