Modified social benches
Outside the Royal Festival Hall which is part of the Southbank Centre

Based on research into ‘personal space’ and inspired by New York street furniture, Danish artist Jeppe Hein created a series of Modified Social Benches. Their design borrows from the familiar park or garden bench, altered to various degrees to make the act of sitting a conscious physical process and challenging the amount of space that people set between themselves and others.LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
