Sprout / Public benches

Sprout
Sprout

“Sprout” is a green concept park bench. The idea comes from sprouts which absorb sunlight and water to grow. There are two solar panels which are set on the bench seat and backrest to transform solar energy into electricity for nighttime illumination. Besides, the shape of “Sprout” is not only well designed to drain rainwater from the bench seat, but also collect and store it in the base of the bench for water saving. The appearance of “Sprout” presents a green image to tell people that Taipei is a green city.
