Bench for Two
Public space is an open space for everyone and street furnishings, such as benches, that must provide comfort for the people in that space. The design of 'Bench for Two' is focusing on the idea that the comfort must include both physical and mental comfort. The survey was taken to develop the idea further and from it, people responded that the main purpose of a bench in a public space is to have a personal moment, and to be able to socialise. From this background, the bench is aimed to give the users the sense of privacy for their time in a public space. In order to do this, 'Bench for two' has a simple mechanism to give users an ability to adjust the seat to their needs.
