This TARDIS bench provides a comfortable seat for both Time Lords and non time-travelling humans – or any species that has a butt and needs to rest their feet or other appendages.
It looks great with the exploding TARDIS fabric on top.
Sometimes you just need something in your day that breaks up the monotony and offers some unexpected play to your otherwise serious life. That’s exactly what the Bench Go Round is all about. It promotes child-like playfulness and helps connect strangers.
It’s hard to keep enough power in your gadgets when you spend time at the park away from an outlet and you have a Flappy Bird binge or take lots of videos of your kids or pet and upload them to Facebook.
Some people put out pails and bins to collect rainwater when it rains. Others, like the folks of MARS architects, put out benches. They’re very different objects, but they serve the same purpose: to collect rainwater which will be used to water plants, wash cars, hose down driveways, and so on and so forth.
Benches are just benches, until a huge red clip is attached to one end of it. Then it becomes a Ruilbank, which is Dutch for “barter bench.”
Essentially, they’re there to hold some reading material in place.
The Switch Bench is probably the funnest, quirkiest bench that I’ve seen in years. At first glance, you’ll see that the bench stays true to its name since it looks like a gigantic switch, like the ones you can commonly find on household appliances and voltage regulators.
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.’
You know how sometimes, there’s only one space left on the bench, and you really don’t want to find yourself sandwiched between a kid throwing a tantrum and a guy eating a Sloppy Joe sloppily? Unfortunately, your choices are only to take that last seat – or remain standing until one of them leaves.
Quirky outoor sofas are nothing new. Remember Softa, which combined the look of indoor sofas and the durability of outdoor furniture? Fast on its heels is the Giant Clothespin Bench by Italian architects Michela and Paolo Baldessari, which as you can see and read, is fashioned in the shape of a giant vintage clothespin.
I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t park my butt anywhere near this thing. It may be fake, but you never know when something is going to come alive through magic and kill you with its razor-sharp choppers.
My grandmother used to have one of those portable, foldable stools that one of us grandkids had to carry around whenever we went out. That way, she’d have something to sit on when she felt tired or when she wanted to take a quick rest.
Buildings used to take months, even years, to construct. But in this day and age where time is of the essence, did you know that these structures can be built in less than six days? Well, that’s what China did anyway with a 15-story building recently.
I’ve heard of tweeting objects before, like a tweeting cat door and the tweeting scale, but this is the first time that I’ve seen a tweeting bench. The TweetingSeat was created by designer Christopher McNicholl. The bench creates logs of its usage (must be very pertinent information), takes photos of people who sit on it, and tweets about it over at its dedicated Twitter feed @TweetingSeat.
