Inspired by the classic “see-saw” playground device, <Hugging Bench> is a future furniture to request for timeless love.
Relationship changes with time but <Hugging Bench> reminds people to continually love and maintain close relationship with each other by hugging or touching more in this increasingly materialized and digitalized world.
Have you ever hugged your mom since you have grown up? Have you ever hugged your old friends? Let’s try <Hugging Bench> to break the estrangement that is building up amongst us quietly!!
The “see-saw” mechanism enables a 2-way of experience: (1) players cooperate to adjust their body weights from the center of the pivot of this long bench to achieve a “balanced” state. (2) On the other way, players create an “imbalanced” state, so that the lighter player will slide down to the heavier one along the slope. They will hug each other naturally.
