Urban breath / Modular system bench

Urban breath
Urban breath

Global warming equals stress.What is stressful to the Earth is stressful to us, and vice versa. People go visit Nature to take a deep breath. I thought of a different way of taking a step closer to Nature through design. In particular, I focused on the shaded space below trees to form spaces for rest as a means to establish a closer bond with Nature. Modularization of the bench design has enhanced spatial efficiency in the narrow city environment and has also allowed increased sustainability. To strike harmony with the surrounding environment, materials used in the surrounding environment have been adopted for the support of the bench.
