The Stuhlhockerbank Public Seat Seems More Like Art Than Furniture

As our world becomes more and more refined in taste and aesthetic, I feel like it is our duty to see additions to public spaces that are more in line with creations such as the Stuhlhockerbank public seat. By taking the boring old bench design and revamping it into something that resembles an art piece rather than a piece of furniture, it can do wonders for the populations mentality, imagination and overall way of life.

Designed by Yvonne Fehling and Jennie Peiz of Kraud for Hofmann Moebel, the Stuhlhockerbank public seat is basically a blend of traditional wooden chairs and stools that have been melded together to form one very large bench. By blurring the lines between different types of furniture, the Stuhlhockerbank public seat expresses "a person’s inner stance in the particular situation," according to the designers.
