Creative Carousel

The design of rotating bench for maximising creativity of users in a park

Creative Carousel is a piece of public furniture which helps the users maximise creativity during relaxation in parks. The chairs rotate automatically at slow speed (one turn in one hour), so that users look at different naturalistic views by the change of time. With sitting on the rotating chair, users can be stimulated with naturalistic stimuli in a park; in the meantime, they can do activities to help them de-stress, like listening to music or doing meditation. Each chair has the sliding glass shield which can be covered for protection of privacy when the users do not want any interruption. Inside the car, there is an audio system which helps the users concentrate on their mind. As a result, the users can think outside the box and get inspiration due to a combination of visual and auditory stimuli in the naturalistic environment of parks.
