Solo&Duo / Bench

Solo&Duo
Solo&Duo

Solo&Duo is a bench that designed to give itself a meaning between me and others’ relationship. First of all, when person sits on a seat board in the center, the seat board goes down because of weight of the person who sits there, and then several bars that hang on the seat board spread horizontally. At this point, the bars forms into new seat board and new bench is made. Reversely, when person stands up, the seat board goes back up by working of spring installation where under the seat board and bar falls horizontally. Like this, users could share their weight and body temperature since someone’s sitting action makes seats for others as well
