Bench Go Round: A Public Bench That’s Also a Merry-Go-Round

(Video Link)

George Zisiadis explains that he designed this bench to create a “playful connection between strangers.” They can’t help it. Two people can sit quietly on a static bench without acknowledging each other, but a merry-go-round is inherently interactive. So the Bench Go Round provides a great way to meet people.

It was his contribution to the Market Street Prototyping Festival last month in San Francisco. That’s a public exhibition of new product and architectural ideas that visitors may want to make a reality. The Bench Go Round should certainly be one of those ideas that is built in every city.
