After a long day of being out and about, outdoor seating may appear as an impossible mirage, but should the sidewalk lead you to the Siesta Bench by Emanuele Magini, you can be sure that you'll get the comfort you deserve.

It's true, park benches and public bleachers are far from comfortable, offering hard wooden surfaces and protruding medal bolts that will make your bum bones ache. This ingenious solution offers softness where it's needed most, though it does come at a cost.

Given the abuse and vandalism that such public amenities receive, the hammock-like sling that forms the seat of the Siesta Bench by Emanuele Magini would surely cease to exist in its original condition within its first 24 hours in a major metropolis. Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly embrace the idea for my own backyard.
