Pencil Bench - office seating made from 1600 pencils
Ideal for an office - especially one that uses a lot of pencils - is this Pencil Bench from Boex.
It's a bench that was created as an experiment, to see if it was possible to turn an everyday office object into a piece of furniture. And it was - although it took 1600 pencils, each individually sprung for your seating comfort. And if you're short of a pencil, it's not a problem, as each can be removed and used. Oh yes - and it has a smart dark wood frame too.
The Pencil Bench has won various design awards over the last year, but hasn't yet gone into commercial production. Although I'm sure they will make you one if you ask nicely.
