When finding a spot to sit in public, benches are ideal, but people like Cas Moor and his conversation-encouraging 'Social Bench' are trying to foster a new revolution of random public interaction.

No matter where you live, sitting somewhere in public is a necessary act that many of people have carried out at some point in their lifetime. Whether it's out of exhaustion or just simply to enjoy a beautiful day, sitting on public benches is a part of life many of us experience. But there's no denying that while sitting beside strangers in public, starting a conversation can be hard and many people often feel disconnected with those around them

This is the ingenious aspect of Cas Moors' conversation encouraging Social Benches. By designing seats to actually face each other, patrons are enticed to strike up a conversation and get to know the people around them a little better.
