flip bench

So you are walking through the park with your lunch in one and Smartphone in the other, when would you believe it there is only one seat on the bench between a mother and her kids and a couple who should get a room! If this park had one of these new Flip Benches, this would not be an issue. This is because all you have to do is grab the seat and pull it forward and you are facing the other way.

This is a little of background information from the designer Daniel Pearlman;

The concept of this outdoor bench derives from research based on communication and non – communication between people behaviour on public benches. My wish was to create an outdoor bench that could combine or separate its users and to make an interactive outdoor piece of furniture that fit into its surrounding environment that will attract inhabitants to “play” and try it.
