The Hover Collection: Seating That Nearly Floats
The bench, part of the Hover Collection, brings me back to a memory I had experienced nearly twenty years ago when I was traveling in Guatemala. In this country, the streets are filled with music that come from hand made instruments that resemble over-sized xylophones not unlike the bench you see above. This bench somehow portrays that light, airy sound of that Guatemalan instrument in a visual form. Besides this observation, I could delve into the obvious observations such as a comparison with Le Corbusier’s Lounge Chair, but let’s not go there. I’ll leave this chair alone to stand on its own merits of simplicity.
