Double-View Bench: Flip the Seatback to Switch Directions


A simple twist on a classic dual-seat bench, this elegant variant lets you choose which way you face in a simple motion and without forcing your neighbor to do the same.

Pivoting on a central metal beam below, the backrests provides sturdy support when you sit down but is easily swung when there is no weight on it. French designer and cabinetmaker Chloe de la Chaise created a limited-edition series of fifty of these benches, produced with options including chestnut, oak, robinia-acacia and moabi.

From the listing: “A contemporary twist on the Victorian Tete a Tete love seat, the Double View bench easily changes your perspective with a minimal effort. The double backrest pivots around an axis located below the seat and thus two people can sit side by side, or in opposing directions. Choose your position, then change it.”
