1. Bench No. 3 by Floris Wubben

Bench No. 3 is a design by Floris Wubben that asks the question of whether or not benches are for sitting. This bench is made of polypropylene, wood and lacquered metal. The wavy polypropylene is attached to the wooden branch with metal rods. As a consequence, the shape of the polypropylene is given by the shape of the branch. The polypropylene forms a fascinating combination along with the natural wood. Although completely different materials, they both need each other to conquer the whole design

8. Sang-Hoon Lee’s Swing Bench

Sang-Hoon Lee’s Swing bench brings to mind that episode of FRIENDS, where Rachel is petrified of the swing and how Ross helps her overcome her irrational fears. For the life of me, I can’t imagine my childhood without the thrill of swinging in the park with innocent abandonment. Now that I’m all grown up (and a few pounds heavier), the kids won’t just let me take the joyride again. I guess I’ll have to make do with the Swing Bench to satisfy my urge to be a kid again.
