Sitting and Seating NYC

Sitting and Seating NYC

With good seating areas, attractive places to stay are stimulated. However, not only the good seats are making the place and vice versa, places without (good) seats can also be very attractive and popular.

People, as always, make the place.

During my stay in NYC, I’ve paid special attention to all this seating as part of the streetlife. What was striking was that many people decide for themselves how they sit on a chair or bench – regardless of what the designer had in mind. They made the public space their own as if it were a living room.. The most successful designs are those that you can sit comfortably on and that can be used in multiple ways.
