The Bench

Client:

The STUFF­group

THE BENCH is a design com­pe­ti­tion cre­ated by The STUFF­group, located in Canada. The idea is to cre­ate a seat­ing space with a max­i­mum pro­duc­tion price of CD$500, which will trans­form the street envi­ron­ment to a form of pub­lic space. We came up with the WINNI[PEG] bench. A bench that engages the pub­lic in a cre­ative and fun way by invit­ing them to manip­u­late the form and func­tion of the bench. The ele­ments out of which the bench is con­structed are from an inex­pen­sive and eas­ily acces­si­ble mate­r­ial. The bench has mov­able pegged ele­ments that plug into the sta­tic bench ele­ments. Some pegged ele­ments are able to be moved by a sin­gle per­son, while oth­ers require mul­ti­ple peo­ple to be moved, encour­ag­ing inter­ac­tion between oth­er­wise would-be strangers.
