Swinging The Other Way

Most of the time you’re nudging your co-bench partner to give you more seat space. So essentially sitting on benches really sucks. Generally they’re hard slabs of wood or concrete and do nothing much for your posterior or fun! This is the reason why we need more of the Swing Together Bench; I don’t need to say much…just have a look at the video and you’ll get the full picture. Google Offices can do with this swing!

    I really love the idea of turning sitting from static to dynamic.

  • Wow this really is great.

      finger traps, public liability, problematic for visually impaired and elderly. moving parts in exterior enviroments are a nightmare to maintain. this design will attract missuse. no water displacement zones so the ‘inner seat’ will never dry.! so i cant see any reasons why i would like this.

        You must not get out of the house a lot for fear of all the dangers the world offers. Do you have doors? Aren’t those finger traps. Have fun dissing other people’s work from your little bubble.

          Might be good for indoors. I was thinking about where the water would go too if it rained. I’ve sat on many benches at bus stops or in parks. Ones that don’t get too hot or too cold because of the weather, and those that dry easily are most convenient.

          not really, these were some of the considerations that i put into practice for the 8 years that i designed street furniture.
