Bend Bench Flips Outdoor Seating on its Head

by


It’s hard to find an outdoor bench that’s as versatile as the Bend Bench. I think you can gather that much, even from its name alone. It’s described as ‘part kinetic sculpture’ and ‘part functional public seating.’

Bend BenchWhat makes the Bend Bench so unique is that its framework allows it to be rotated both horizontally and vertically. The whole design is pretty confusing but just think of it as a combination of merry-go-round and umbrella.

The bench provides back-to-back seating, but one of the seats can also be flipped over to serve as a sort of cover to protect the people seated on the other side from the elements. Pretty neat, eh?
