The Cloister Bench is another awesome piece designed by Fabio Capello. Though the seat does seem to function like any other bench (pretty straightforward -- you sit on it) its looks are unlike any other seating piece I've ever seen.
The bench follows a standing, circular pattern not unlike a rack of lamb, but is folded to resemble an accordion. The best part about the seat is its ability to ensure all those sitting on it can see eye to eye, which encourages interactivity and actual, in-person socializing that is growing less frequent nowadays.
The Cloister Bench is also a bright, bold shade of blue, which is the color of calmness and serenity. Ultimately, this unconventional, yet inviting bench is a great place to sit, relax and enjoy an awesome structure.
