I love this sort of stuff.
Making the everyday better, and especially making the everyday better in urban spaces.I wrote a while back about Swings in the Sky and seats with a view, and the below bench is super smart.
This is a bike rack which doubles as a bench. This is the kind of innovation ubran planners need to be taking notice of, in my uninformed opinion, maximising the use of urban furniture to improve and benefit communities.
I posted this on my Instagram the other day.
This is a street in Surry Hills, near to my office in Sydney, where they have installed urban gardens built in sculptures. I am yet to pick any Rosemary from it, but it’s a great idea, and looks cool, to boot.
The Wright Bench was designed by Eugene Duclos, a student at Appalachian State University for the Perennial Wood Appalachian State Design Studio contest
