this outdoor seating project is the work of adriano design, a torino based studio. the team is now working with colomer, who will begin manufacturing these pieces in the next few months. while most cities have lots of benches and similar street furniture, these designs are centuries old and not designed with contemporary needs in mind. so when adriano design set out to meet the needs of city dwellers today, they had to re-examine what was needed. their findings led them to design a two-level seat, where one level is used for sitting and the other functions as a surface for eating or using a computer.
