Is there a name for this type of design thinking? It was such a modest intervention I almost didn’t notice this public bench outside a Maroubra (Sydney) cafe. Or rather, I saw a public bench with two places to rest a cup and plate, but didn’t immediately see the elemental charm of the thought that made someone see a piece of city street furniture differently.
Other ways of seeing cities —both simple and complex—will be one of the topics covered in our new, soon-to-be-launched site: Good Habitat.
