Tribüne / livingroom bleachers


During the last few years, the livingroom habits have changed significantly. Now livingrooms are often equipped with widescreen-TVs, video projectors and surround-systems that transform our living spaces into stadiums or movie theatres. Since developement in entertainment electronics made such products affordable, providing the space is the bigger issue to the majority of the users.
In order to regain living space, sofas should be replaced with a more efficient solution -the \"Tribüne\". The various ranks of the bench encourage to use and to combine the bench in multiple ways: as a seat bench, a dining table, a desk or as bleachers.
