Need to let out some stress? Donttakethisthewrongway, a design firm in New York City, understands. So it strapped cheerfully yellow punching bags to street light poles in Soho, Chelsea, and Washington Square Park. Punch and kick your worries away! The designers explain:
the concept explores designing common spaces for the emotions we all face. good or bad, as we travel from point A to point B we deal with a good number of frustrations. frustrations that go beyond designed systems and happen, well, because we are human. the public punching bag offers an outlet for these emotions as a means to maybe develop a healthier way to address personal and collective issues in a public setting.
