LiteAway / interactive bench


My project is based on interaction in public spaces. I wanted to design was an interactive bench that engages the user. This bench uses solar panels to charge to a battery during the day, the stored energy then powers the bench. The whole idea was about making it fun and interactive. The bench design is activated by the user, this happens by the user sitting on the bench which turns on the light. The light then slowly changes colour the longer the user sits. The backdrop also becomes a screen that can display advertisement on or can become a live stream of the surrounding area.
