Luftikus / Interactive rocking bench


Happy go lucky people can sometimes be seen as careless or lacking focus. Such attributes can have negative connotations. We are required to focus continually throughout the day. At school, at university or in the office. The interactive swing brings out the inner child and enables us to briefly let go of our day to day stresses. The physical sensation of swinging forwards then pausing briefly, at one with gravity, is universal. It evokes feelings of freedom and fascinates bare foot children and adults alike. The Luftikus allows face-to-face swinging together with a companion.
