Jurgen Bey, part of the Amsterdam-based Droog Design collective, has created Day-tripper, a garish pink, silk-screened polyurethane foam bench. The structure is 7m long by 1.25m wide by 1.65m high and emblazoned with a flower pattern. Its shape was inspired by ‘the different positions people assume on the street’ and the ‘shapes of old furniture’, says Bey. The bench will be on show in the 11ha Roppongi Hills Cultural Centre in Tokyo from this month.
