flexible bench by Giulio Iacchetti
‘flexible bench is a special seat for urban furnishings. through the rotation of the seat/seat back it becomes a shelter,
a sort of roof that protects from the summerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s blistering heat, from the bad weather and as a night shelter.
a project dedicated to those who arrive in the city and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a place to stay.’ GI
