Designer Maarten Pauwelyn has created a social outdoor seating set that looks perfect for long lazy days playing footsies in the garden with friends. Named “Bottlebench,” the outdoor setting features five reclined seats that are all fixed to a central point.
So named because of its similarity to the bottom of a plastic bottle, the Bottlebench resembles something you would expect to find in a children’s playground, however this one’s definitely designed with adults in mind and doesn’t come with a spinning option!

Bottlebench is made from recyclable polyester and each individual seat comes stacked on top of one another for easy packaging and transportation. The central point and arms of the seating can double as drink holders and it appears that the design also includes an umbrella holder at its core.
There's no word on whether the Bottlebench will get a commercial release.
