the german design studio rugwind has designed this seemingly normal electrical box that transforms into a bench for sitting when needed. also known as guerrilla bench, the project aims to subvert the objects of the typical urban environment, making them more human and functional. the bench neatly folds up inside a standard electric box case. a user simply opens the box, unfolds the bench and takes a seat by themselves or with friends to create a small congregation point. the box blends into the street scene, only coming to life when a user with knowledge of its hidden life walks by.
