Always a dry side

Yanko Design reports: [edited]

Don’t you love the days following a rainstorm? The streets seem to gleam, the air is cleaner, and people are generally in a better mood to finally see the sun again. The only thing that sucks are all those wet benches and chairs. Fortunately clever designers Sungwoo Park, Yoonha Paick, Jongdeuk Son, Banseok Yoon, Eunbi Cho & Minjung Sim came up with a simple solution. The slats on these benches can rotate to the dry side by cranking the handle.


Brett's 2p'orth: Clever idea. However the temptation to turn that handle while someone is sitting/sleeping on the bench might be just a little too strong to resist.
