Modular D & A Seating is Inviting and Fun

D & A Seating is the creation of London product designer, Assaf Israel. Basically, he wanted to improve public seating options which tend to be cramped, uncomfortable and as a consequence, uninviting. Not to mention, traditional public seating does not allow for different ways of interacting as they are usually configured so people sit next to each other.

The D&A Seating features modular units that can be arranged in many ways, including formal or informal configurations that allow people to have a friendlier experience when meeting in public. The modules come in either upholstered or polyethylene finish, and when together, they create a sort of landscape which is more of a natural environment than the traditional public seating configurations.

By the way, this design won the Assaf Israel a Saphire prize (Bezadel Academy) and "Project of the Year" (Israel Architecture magazine.) Stats for Interactive Public Seating Trending: Older & Mild
