The ChaTaT Bench is a new take on the two-century old loveseat concept. Named after a combination of the word chat and TaT, the acronym for the French term tête-à-tête, the ChaTaT enables two people to converse face-to-face by sitting on opposite sides of the bench. The seating surfaces at the ends are angled off the horizontal plane in opposing directions. This twisted seating surface communicates the bench’s intent of fostering face-to-face interactions. The twist angle is minimal enough to also accommodate a conventional seating configuration for one person or two.
