Bench Chair is a combination of chair and bench designed by German designer Thomas Schnur. In designer’s words, “Bench Chair clearly takes its inspiration from the famous Monobloc Chair but puts the associations that any chair evokes into a new context. Its curved shape is contorted into a voluminous body, thereby creating an abstract space, such that observers are confronted with a transformed hybrid. It is as simple to manufacture as the monobloc: a rotational molding process means that Bench Chair can be serially produced.”
