The concept idea behind this project was to totally change the common perception of “urban bench”, using one basic element as a starting point for more complex set-ups, in combination of two or four units. Furthermore, another basic aspect of the design process was to keep the existing infra-structures of the city untouched. So, “just drop & forget” installation method was introduced.

this was the “in-between” project in a series of designs that started with Nessie and finished (?) with Eighternity.
oh yeah
