A gently shifting surface and a simple enclosure where companions are brought closer together. With a foot on the ground, they can lean back and gently rock. A point on a route to rest, or a destination in its own right.

Formed from a single repeated plywood profile, each rotated 1° and fixed together. The rotation of each profile stabilises the seat across its width by allowing a greater surface connection to the ground below.
