Let’s Call a Spade a Bench
July 9, 2009 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
I love the whimsical Batsenmeubel, or Spade Bench, created by Dutch designer Nic Roex. It’s an entertaining sculptural composite of bright green metal garden spades and bicycle wheels. The bench sports eight seats on eight partial bike wheels: your entire garden party can sit together, though they wouldn’t be facing each other–a good idea perhaps if it’s family you’d rather not engage with.
