Here's some more from the architects:


A public bench as a reference to urban conditions. We propose Stair, a bench with multiple seating levels, allowing people to sit in a way that is less prescribed, more flexible and more social. Constructed with triangular prisms, that are connected in such way, they form an infinite variety of stair-shaped seating platforms. Please, take a seat

Materials used: Plywood prototype

    super ! love it and I really believe this could work….

  • I am always amazed at the creativity of some people. This is a great example of re-thinking and re-designing seating. Apply an interesting stain pattern to the bench and it for sure will take center stage…

  • fun and amazing I think this is not bad idea
