On a river trip, we split into two boats with outboard motors. As we raced next to each other, I was struck by the high bows of the vessels that seemed to rock up and down on the river. The Pomeroon River Bench, a long rocking chair that is stepped into like a boat, is influenced by this experience. I wanted the form to be fun and active to sit in, and also be relaxing when it is converted into a lounge. The removable bench uncovers a pillow, which when placed at the front tip of the Pomeroon River Bench allows for a comfortable lay and slight sway front to back.
