Poca / bench


Different styles of public benches offer various opportunities for people to interact with one another. Poca is a public bench that has been developed exactly for the sake of enabling this interaction. Depending on the angle, the seats offer their users different options of sitting and communicating. The backrest of this wooden bench is curved and ergonomically matched for comfortable seating. The individual elements are likewise inspired by a natural seating position which gives this bench a dynamic effect. With its delicate and unobtrusive design, Poca integrates itself ideally in the urban environment.
