Overview: Diagonal Play is an extension of the original Diagonal concept.

Diagonal Play consists of four bench elements that can be placed as desired. These bench elements are ideal for corridors, and other areas where a limited amount of space is available. Each element consists of two separate parts, which can be upholstered in different fabrics. Also one of the parts can be ordered slightly higher than the others enabling short term laptop work.

TweetingSeat – Twitter Bench

Overview: Kudos to the British Royalty for recognizing the potential of social media! Gizmodo’s Kat Hannaford reports that invitees have been encouraged to report the event live via Twitter and mobile uploads! This brings me to the project at hand called TweetingSeat, an exploration into the potential for connecting physical and digital communities.

What this means is that the bench is an interactive medium that records the users behavior whist he/she sits on the bench, happily tweeting to their followers. It has two cameras; one camera is located on the bench looking at the surrounding space, and another is located nearby looking at the people who use it. Both these cameras capture the proceedings and stream it live to the twitter page. Big Brother enough for ya?
