Spielbein has vertical legs on one side and tilted ones on the other. Its basic form is reminiscent of a person standing relaxed with one engaged and one loosely angled leg, which is Spielbein in german. Building rows by placing the tilted legs between the vertical ones of the next chair, you get the impression of people sitting crosslegged. The chair has an extension of the seating surface towards one side. The extension closes the gap between aligned chairs, that build a bench in their entirety. The backrests still define single seats, whereas the seating surface invites people to offer someone else a place without relinquish it themselves.
