The Atis Bench is the only bench around designed specifically for slopes. This ingenious public perch was created by Mikhail Belyaev as a solution to a very common problem.

Belyaev created the Atis Bench as a way for people to keep their clothes clean when sitting on a grassy hill. No matter what the season, the grass in public parks always seems to be wet. This leads to stained clothing and an uncomfortable seating arrangement. The Atis Bench is designed with two legs that work similar to stakes. The bench doesn't have much ground clearance, but it does keep your bum off the ground and your clothes clean. The Atis Bench was the first prize winner at the Perm furniture design contest.
