‘another picnic table’ by wouter nieuwendijk and jair straschnow
a design collaboration between designed by wouter nieuwendijk and jair straschnow, ‘another picnic table’ is a variation
on the iconic outdoor furniture object that tries to tackle two issues. first, nieuwendijk and straschnow’s version
splits the bench into separate seats which results in a more comfortable arrangement. at the same time,
these seats can be flipped upwards to provide an alternative, more relaxed low seating position when one
does not require the use of the picnic table, giving the picnic table a new typology. the design is constructed from pressed bamboo.
