Acting more like a narrative structure than a traditional piece of furniture, the various positions of the chairs and chair backs and the way they’re integrated may force you to sit face to face with another person instead of side by side, prompting unexpected encounters with strangers.
While that may not appeal to everyone, the Stuhlhockerbank is at least universally pleasing in that, coming up on it in a public space, you can’t help but smile at the whimsical seating arrangement. Imagine chancing upon it Central Park. Even if you chose not to straddle the bench or knock knees with your seat mate, it’s obviously got a lot on the everyday park bench.
