The Campus Bench Encourages Socializing

Seeing that we recently brought you anti-social seating, how about a design that takes us in a much friendlier direction?

This privately-commissioned Akbank Campus Bench is the work of Turkish designer Joshua Saling. It is designed with the idea of magnetizing interaction of students on college and university campuses. The modified X-shape form of the low-maintenance Dupont Corian white benches can be combined in multiple configurations.

The modular design of the Campus Bench is effective in the adaptation to limited spaces and to personalize on-the-fly to meet the requirements of the users themselves.
