At first, Soft Bench appears to play-on traditional design but as one gets closer, the bench suddenly undulates and distorts to provide a supple and relaxing seat along half of its length. Sitting upright or lying back, passers-by can take time to relax, appropriate the object and discover their surroundings. The bench functions at the intersection of public and private space. Appropriating urban furniture, users can take time to contemplate the area and landscape. Suited to urban public areas or parks, Soft Bench offers new compositions for urban living.
