creatively and dynamically sitting in public
Questioning human coexistence by challenging the way of sitting in public such as a target integrated manufacturing process.

Human-human interaction such as human-object relation is getting addressed.

Flow-t gives space to creatively and dynamically sit in public —Flow-t benches have a curved edge which makes the sitting experience challenging and playful in the same time. A spacial arrangement with the person next to you opens up a spacial interaction within a playful approach. The dynamic benches are also dynamic in terms of locations. They can either belong to a specific area like a coffeehouse or a institution or the location can be changed by the people while the position is displayed online for generating a geo-caching game.

These benches examined it's digital dimension; it is geo-localised and allows for interaction with other users located in different environment

How-to manual for making a bench for special human interactions.

Shipped components and local available materials/ tools become a urban furniture which fit in a designed process of use.

The production process is fully transparent and de-centralised at each step of the bench production —from wood suppliers to assembling workshops. It explores the possibility to produce the same bench in different ways depending on the profile, skills and knowledge of the user and to allow he/she/they to purchase a fully constructed bench or one to be self-made. The construction is based on simple joints which can be of two forms: produced professionally by experienced craftsmen/factories or assembled manually by any citizen.
