Look around the park. Do you spot anything askew?
Park benches are important public amenities: they allow people to spend more time outside and connect with others in their community. Drawing inspiration from this, Ferry Benches is a series of handcrafted benches which appear curiously warped, defying the bench's conventional functiom as an object on which people remain still and rest.
By giving this humble furniture a playful twist, Tawatchai hopes to inject moments of fun into the lives of local residents - even during the simple act of sitting.
