Great Industrial Design Student Work: The Private Public Bench

This Private Public Bench was designed by Dafi Reis-Doron, during her time as an Industrial Design student at the Bezalel Academy of Arts in Jerusalem.

“The research question behind this project was how to find privacy in public area, using objects.”

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

“Adding a hinge to each beam of the public bench allows them to rotate and mark a separate seating space. At the same time, the rotation of the beams allows new ways of interaction around the bench, such as making a space for a group meeting of up to twenty people on one single bench.”

“The design retains the familiar form of a classic bench, which only increases people’s surprise in discovering its new functionality as the beams spread apart.”

The project is quite old; Reis-Doron has long had her degree and has run her own ID studio for over a decade.
