This project was inspired by parks, on finding that park benches are boring and very small.
Normally, only two people can sit down and, if they are carrying rack sacks, bags etc., there is just enough room for one person. A park is a public area, and a public area is supposed to be used by the highest possible number of people.
Why not design a giant bench big enough for a whole family or a group of friends? We would liven up the park and promote it as a place where people come together and enjoy themselves.
