Bringing People Closer With Social Bench Pods

Posted 2 years ago by

Public art installations are some of the most thought provoking pieces around, and there’s another one from designer Nacho Carbonell put together a piece for Dutch Design Week that got people talking– literally.

Situated out front of Eindhoven’s Katrina Kerk cathedral, this bench offers privacy while still allowing people from all over to sit down and enjoy some fun conversation with a loved one or a complete stranger. With just a small opening allowing users to communicate, this space seems a lot like a confessional or like you could play a great game of telephone. The pod encapsulated seats are created by chicken wire formed to hold sprayed cement and recycled paper material.
