Strangers spin together on public art bench Bench Go Round in San Francisco

San Francisco designer George Zisiadis looks at the urban landscape a little differently, re-imagining the world as a place to play. In that spirit, he combines a common feature of the city street, the park bench, with the mainstay of the playground: the merry-go-round. The result is the Bench Go Round, a beautiful, whimsical piece of public art that lets complete strangers share a moment of fun.

Unlike conventional benches, Bench Go Round has seats that face in opposite directions and is mounted on a central swivel. Instead of legs, wheels support the seats, so when two people sit on the bench, they can push with their feet to cause the entire bench to rotate.
