Out of investigating design, communication, and social behaviour within the urban area, a series of bench styles was born beneath the common title Modified Social Benches. The bench styles borrow their basic type from the ever-present park or garden bench, but changed to varied degrees to create the act of sitting a aware physical endeavour. With their modifications, the benches reworktheir surroundings into places of activity instead of rest and solitude; they foster exchange between the users and also the passers-by, so disposition the work a social quality. as a result of their alterations, the benches end up somewhere between a dysfunctional object and a useful piece offurniture, and thus demonstrate the contradiction between design and useful object.
Fabulous design of benches by artist Jeppe Hein. Enjoy!
