“Modified Social Benches” by Jeppe Hein
Some of our articles were already devoted and more than one of them will be devoted to the theme of benches because of the constant topicality. Bench is a decoration of the streets and parks, it is our compliant element of relaxation in our usual walks and the most important thing is that the bench is a beginning of every relationship. This time we want to tell about very interesting and creative park benches designed by Jeppe Hein (Denmark). The title of this group of benches is “Modified Social Benches”. The main idea was to alter the common form of the benches "to make the act of sitting on them a conscious physical endeavour". In other words these extraordinary modifications call for activity rather than for rest and solitude making ordinary piece of furniture be functional. Have a look at these new opportunities of the usual benches.
