“Urban Seat” by Damien Gires- Le Plan B (2009)
Urban seat seeks to transform mundane artifacts of the urban periphery into seats. The seat engage the context in dynamic way that encourage interaction amongst participants. The seats are made from folded sheet metal and often feature components such as swivels, to bring a participatory aspect to their configuration.
The seats were created to challenge established rules within the city, while creating environments for people to re- evaluate their role within a city. The seats challenged parking and smoking regulations by proposing privative uses for space that circumvented policies.
