French designer Jean-S├ębastien Poncet created fascinating colorful benches called 'Animaux Domesticki' that look more like works of art than furniture to sit on.

Jean-S├ębastien Poncet took inspiration for his bench designs from the various forms and anatomical structures of animal bodies. Created from bronze metal blocks fused together, these animal benches look like toy figurines from a child's imagination. The obscure minimalist design of these benches encourage users are to sit upright and dangle their feet over either side. Currently there are only four animal inspired designs: a red deer, a blue bull and a yellow cow.

While these colorful benches look more like gallery sculptures than comfortable benches, they are a creatively different twist on the typical park bench.
