Synergy Furniture (ESI Chair, ESI Bench and EI Stool).                                        


Exploring how public furniture can encourage social interaction. My bespoke design gives people the choice to socially interact in a place where they have something in common, such as living, college or office area. My Inspiration came from observing seating arrangements and layouts which best creates social interaction between people. My design was inspired by the well known traditional park/garden bench. The ESI chair and bench are modular panelled pieces which can stand alone or when connected to others, it creates a space giving people the choice to sit facing or away from people that surrounds them, Encouraging Social interaction.
