The Benchmark – Five of the Most Innovative Urbastyle Bench Solutions
Thinking outside the box is the essence of great design. It’s what creatives do with regular ease, and in doing so make our lives that little bit more interesting. Take the humble bench for example – it can be a rectangular block of concrete created simply for the purposes of sitting on and filling a space. Or it can be something else, something more beautiful, as much a piece of street art as it is a functional object. Here are five of the most innovative designs for urban benches that offer both beauty and practical solutions.
As the name suggests this is simply a circular bench, a straightforward and attractive structure which provides adequate seating in parks or urban areas. What makes this uncomplicated piece of design so effective is that its centre is used for planting trees and shrubbery – essential for greener air in urban areas.
This bench is designed to fit securely over ditches or uneven surfaces, creating an eye-catching piece of street furniture that is safe to sit on and makes practical use of space. The size of the bench means that many people can sit together.
City Scape Concrete Bench
Stylish and contemporary this bench is a response to the need to create decorative seats in urban and conservation areas. The bench is surprisingly comfortable to sit on and has a slightly rounded style which means people don’t necessarily have to sit beside each other but can still see one another.
Bench Soft Seat
This unique bench is designed both for indoor and outdoor areas such as squares, parks, shopping centres, even art galleries. What is so clever about this bench is at first glance it looks like it’s made out of soft cushions but it is in fact made from concrete. Beautiful to look at this bench brings a certain warmth and charm to even the most sterile of spaces.
Bench B. Flex
This elegant concrete bench comes in a variety of colours and can be arranged in countless different ways. The parts fit together like building blocks to create a unique urban space. It is probably fair to say that this interesting piece of design could easily be mistaken for street art but it also acts a comfortable bench.
