As aesthetically pleasing as the Glowing Light Ball Bench may be, there is an even bigger practical aspect to the seat's light ball supports. It provides an ambient light for indoor and outdoor spaces that ensures people know where to sit when it is unusually dark and safeguards against potential accidents.

Created by Austrian designer and artist Manfred Kielnhofer, the Glowing Light Ball Bench was unveiled at the Light Art Biennial Austria. A simple design, it consists of three large balls in different colors (red, green and white) that hold up two wooden or plastic planks, both of which have been crafted to take on a sinuous shape.

The Glowing Light Ball Bench "is based on philosophical thinking patterns," according to Plus Mood. Stats for Luminous Sphere Seating Trending: Older & Chilly
