People Watching Bench by &made

People Watching Bench 1

By &made, made from CNC Punched Steel with Solid Iroko and Brass, the People Watching Bench was designed for London Architectural Biennale 2oo4 but the bench still stands in St. John's Park, Clerkenwell.

In the notion of ‘people watching’ in parks, these four benches are situated in a circle, each one looking onto the back of another. Whilst from a distance the holes punched into the backs of the benches create images of life often found in the park, these holes also provide small spying holes to view others from when seated.
