Spoon / Public bench


‘The people of heaven and hell both use a very long spoon for meal, and the people of hell use the spoon only for themselves, so everyone is hungry, but the people of heaven use it to feed each other, so everyone is satisfied.’

‘Spoon’ is a public bench which brings the concept from a story ‘The Spoon of Heaven and Hell’. The shape of the bench is like a spoon, so the user rotates his or her chair to provide shade and light to others, and he or she also receives shade and light from others.
