‘elevated bench’, designed by itay ohaly
the ‘elevated bench’, the recent work of israeli designer itay ohaly, is urban furniture with a view.
the public benches are constructed at the top of spiral staircases that climb streetlight poles,
providing a new perspective on the city streets, as well as a more private space for conversation.

altering the colour of the stairs lets ‘elevated bench’ fit naturally into a range of urban environments
ohaly imagines the idea adapted to the exterior walls of buildings, in addition to poles and streetlights
