Urban idleness

wirebench3Wirebench (in photo) is a new kind of bench for urban furniture invented by the young designer Simon Daniel Brown. Just graduated he won RSA Winner Award 2007 for his creation, because of refined and singular design. This bench is entirely made of wire clothes hanger. The design is modular, full of straight, short curve, and long curve segments that can be joined and arranged in adaptable formations to fit a number of environments.(as the example here). simon2Components are set in order to discourages people from sleeping, but also is made in order to permit people to be social and to converse with other thank to his shape: people can choose to interact or not be disturbed depending on exactly where on the structure they sit. An other characteristic is that it is good for open space because it let the dirt and rain pass through, keeping the bench clean. I think that it’s full of positive aspects but I’m not so sure that it could be so comfortable. 😉
