Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Today we found a blog that acknowledged the winners of barkman Design Competition, a University of Manitoba student competition that featured some really inspired, functional public seating.

I really like the leaning rail – I could really get into a good lean while I ignore the outer world on my iPhone. Think the seats are one size fits all?

I hope these students go on to receive funding for their concepts one day. I love a good reclaimed wood DIY. Why not line our streets and parks with them? As another fine designer, Nils Vik, once said: “Life is too short to not be surrounded by beautiful things.”
