The Mexico City Seating Installation may look abstract and random, but in fact it was greatly influenced by the hustle and bustle of the metropolis it was created for. A far cry from traditional public seating, this installation brings to life vibrant blobs of red and black that provide as much visual stimulation as it does rest for the feet.

Designed by designers Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo of the London-based studio El Ultimo Grito, the Mexico City Seating Installation is made out of a skeleton of wooden beams and bubble wrap. This skeleton was then completely covered with neon stickers. A fun project, volunteers as well as adult and children passersby helped to finish it. Talk about encouraging community in a city.
