Bench with Circle
is a strange product, but one that we can see filling a void just perfectly in a home with wireless Internet.
Designed by Mark Zuckerman and Monty Lawton, Bench with Circle is an upholstered bench outfitted with a circular tabletop at one end. To use it as a workstation you prop your laptop on the upholstered tabletop and straddle the bench. Sit the other way when using it to watch TV or hang out. We like that it can coexist with other soft furniture in a modern livingroom or bedroom without advertising itself as the home office.
To our eye, Bench with Circle does not look like a good ergonomic setup for long work sessions or for tall people. Though if the tabletop swiveled up and down like a piano seat it would be perfect. Mark and Monty, you guys listening?
