Weird Furniture: Pencil Bench

Boex 3D Creative Solutions designed this quirky bench to see if it could "incorporate an everyday office object into a piece of furniture." It's made up of 1600 pencils, and each can be removed and used. The bench won the "Best of Show" award at the 2007 Cornwall UK Design Week. Do you think it's a winner?

I think it looks super cool but I have to agree with the other comments – seems like it would get very dirty and not be that comfortable... I'd love to see it with a clear (glass) top to use as a coffee table though!

Looks neat! But I would have to sit on it first. Looks like it could be irritatingly pokey.

I think it's kinda cool- I like the pink too. But I don't think it's very functional.

I think some designer furniture , like this one , is just to be looked at and not used, because they can look really cool but they're totally inpractical, like what Row D said

Row D, agreed. It is spiffy, though.

Wouldn't the eraser bits get worn out if you sat on them a lot?? And they'd get dirty from the dye on your jeans, etc... Design wise looks cool, but it didn't take long for me to think... "ew".
