While waiting for the bus in Milan after a irritable day, visit the Fra.Biancoshock Anti-Stress Station to smooth over all of your worries.
The street artist conceived a brilliant idea to hang square sheets of bubble wrap for transit patrons to enjoy as they wait. The sheets are positioned under a cardboard placard reading "Antistress For Free!". People can choose from three differentiating plastic sheets that take from three to ten minutes to pop. Bursting the bubbles on plastic shipping wrap is globally well known as a simple and addictive pleasure, and Biancoshock was able to see how it may be applied to de-stress high strung city-dwellers.
The Fra.Biancoshock Anti-Stress Station seems to be one of the cheapest and most effective therapeutic inventions ever made.
