Mobile Bench 001 / Street Furniture

Mobile Bench 001
Mobile Bench 001

The mobile bench is an outdoor parkbench for public spaces.
The concept is intended to convey what digitized futures in public spaces could look like. People, with their interests and wishes, are brought into focus. The Bench promotes inclusion and participation. With the individual choices of the users, the object can be used in many ways, as it asks for creativity, but is also ready for changes and unpredictable usage scenarios. While for some people the bench can be a stimulus for sports activities, for others it can be a place of tranquility.
Movement zones of the bench are dynamically restricted by using bluetooth low energy technology.
