note worthy
The benches are formed from flat rectangles of same proportions to Euro currency.


These benches can be distributed flat, and be folded out as needed. They can be folded back to flat for efficient storage. They are made of polyethylene plastic, grooved with hinge-like fold channels. Once folded, they create a flexible yet sturdy structure that is pleasantly perky. The bench has a springy action, which cushions you as you get seated, and assists you as you get standing.

The bold graphics can be slowly phased out to brand colors, once everyone becomes acquainted with the symbolic origin of the shape. Because each bench is inexpensive, the color or graphics can be changed seasonally.
