This curious bench was created during a special workshop at ENSCI-Les Ateliers with three designers and four comedians from the Jacques Lecoq Theatre School. During two weeks, we were invited to experiment materials, liase with the comedians and design together a object for the stage. We proposed this funny bench, mix between a rocking horse and a luge, that invites comedians to find a balance game.
