Allegro non troppo is a vibrating massage bed for two persons. Like a sounding board the wooden body of the box intensifies the sound of the vibrating motors. With a remote control you can choose 8 different sounds or rhythms as massage programs. The modulation of the sounds changes with the intensity of the massage. The users find themselves in a situation between concentration on the physical effect of the rhythmic massage, communication in an intimate situation and being exhibited on a kind of stage.
