This chatty bench is made to be installed in outdoor or indoor cultural spaces. Thanks to two Bluetooth speakers integrated in the backrest, it whispers sounds or informations to visitors. Our first inspiration was the confident armchair and from that we wanted to keep an intimate atmosphere with a s
ound that comes from the back. By adding a new sensitive dimension, the experience becomes more immersive. We declined it into two colors versions, a natural and a painted one, to be able to easily integrate it in different environments. It is stackable and easily rechargeable. Thanks to the caps, the speakers can correctly be replaced into this big tube, which gives all the character to our object.
This project, made in collaboration with Clemence Buytaert was awarded by the USM Design grant 2020.
