In the ever-evolving, and not to mention rapidly developing, world in which we reside, the troubles of public transit, communal spaces and human interaction in basic are forever difficult. From the early urban arranging of Barcelona centuries ago to the crowded subways of New York City nowadays, the query of how to accommodate the masses’ needs — not just today, but years, decades, even centuries from now — is largely unanswered, even though a lot are definitely performing their ideal to try. One such pair of dreamer/doers is Yvonne Fehling and Jennie Peiz, whose Kraud design studio out of Denmark is accountable for a perplexing set of public seating choices. Their series of community benches, named Stuhlhockerbank, is — in Fehling and Peiz’s words — “a series of seating for public spaces that approach users and viewers in an extraordinary way. The dividing lines amongst distinct varieties of furnishings (chair, stool, bench) are eliminated as the 3 varieties blend. The final results are immobile constellations that express a person’s inner stance in the distinct circumstance.” Frankly, we’re not totally confident what that signifies, but think about stepping off a train or plane and becoming faced with this sort of seating option. Wonder if it might make us far more likely to chat up our neighbors as we wait for our subsequent connection? Only a genuine-life test would inform for sure… but in any event, it’s undoubtedly something to believe about. Fehling and Peiz have produced several iterations of the idea in their Denmark studio.
