The seats are made from classic Dutch bike saddles and constructed on the bollards with a solid piece of metal. At the bottom a footrest is attached to the bollard, to make the stool pretty comfortable. The project is meant to activate the street as a place to enjoy. The concept invites us to reconsider the importance of the street as a social space instead of a traffic domain.
This seats located at the bridge between the Keizersgracht and the Leliegracht provide a great view over the water in the historic city center of the Dutch capital. Click here for photos of this remarkable urban intervention and click here to become a fan on Facebook.
