Need a seat in the city but the benches are bustlin’? Click Boom Pow, problem solved!

The native New York collective Click Boom Pow has recently been putting the issue of urban planning in the hot seat with its New Role Models project. The project’s purpose is to exploit the need for improved urban planning, and it does just that. The series of stylish seats was decorated by a variety of artists who all took their own approach to the design. These serviceable steel seats were then secretly planted throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, giving spunk to streets and seats to sitters. Click Boom Pow hopes that the New Role Models project will inspire seat-loving citizens to create imaginative ways to improve their city.

Click Boom Pow’s "chairitable" project is artistic and thought provoking.
