When designers are called upon to make a public space more comfortable, their ideas are endless! Here are some of the creative options they’ve come up with. Don’t you wish there were some of these designs in your city?
The public bench which is also a flower bed
The eco-friendly Wi-Fi hotspot
The reflective garden fence which changes appearance depending on the season
The glow-in-the-dark bike path in this park
The pubic bench which you can turn over after it rains and sit on the dry underside
These designs for a bench, staircase ramp and rain shelter
The bench which is also a table
The fold-out chairs which look like tulips
And the alternatives to benches — public hammocks!
The bus stop with swings
These free public battery chargers for smartphones
Two uses in one: it’s both a bench and a tree guard
