Presenting the Aster urban lounger, a snazzy spin on outdoor lounging by Italian company Emo Design. A stylish, asymmetrical structure in neutral colours that comfortably seats two, the Aster is smarter than the average park bench; its roof, for instance, is made of glass, effectively letting light in while shielding the user from rain (or bird droppings).

There are also adjustable lights on the lounger for easy reading when the sun goes down. Not impressed yet? The unit also comes equipped with WiFi and a speaker system housed in the concrete module. All the electronic elements are activated by motion sensors.

Another cool feature of the Aster is that its concrete base could be disassembled to create three seats if necessary. With its sleek lines and minimalist design, the Aster lounger is a smart fit in any public space or backyard. Stats for Technologically Advanced Park Benches Trending: Older & Average
