Modified Park Benches Foster Community And Socializing [Pics]
Jeppe Hein's bench designs transform places of rest and solitude into active spaces, fostering exchange between users and passers-by.
Danish designer Jeppe Hein created this series of benches that change social behavior. After investigating architecture, communication, and social behaviour in the urban space, Hein developed ‘Modified Social Benches,’ which share their basic form with the normal park or garden bench but are each altered in different ways to change how people sit on them.
