A swingin’ bar is usually one that features loud music, strong drinks and plenty of attractive people. Duffy London puts an entirely new meaning behind that phrase with their quite unusual Swing Bar.

Rather than the stationary bar stools typically found in a restaurant or bar setting, the Swing Bar introduces a rather more dizzying type of seating. A powder-coated steel frame surrounds a rectangular bar around which 24 odd chairs are arranged.

The chairs gathered around the bar are suspended from a freestanding frame, held in place by cables rather than legs. The effect is dramatic as the chairs appear to hover in mid-air around the bar.
