On a hot summer’s day, nothing could be better that a nice bench and a little shade to cool off. The Kaphar concept does just that. This shade is a two-sided bench that has a flower shaped shade that blooms to greet visitors.

This polite public bench resembles an unbloomed flower when not in use and opens up when a user sits on the bench. The structure itself is flexible yet durable to withstand different weather conditions.
