Oasis Mobiliário Urbano

Currently we live in a more individualistic society and gradually we lose the perception of the social context. In order to ensure a better life quality in the city, it is necessary to invest in comfortable and inviting places to sit and stay in public spaces.
Oasis bench was designed as an inviting instrument to stimulate the humanization of public place. The playfulness promoted by individual movements of each backrest part enables the seat adjustment according to the user's will: the person can choose the field of view and how he/she wants to interact with others. Oasis bench was inspired by loveseats, which allow eye-to-eye communication
