Boombench by NL architects

This is a great idea in seating / bench design while you can sit and play or hear the music at the same time from the bench that you sit on. Designed by German designer Michael Schoner of NL Architects. The designer has designed a bench that plays music from passing mobile phones via Bluetooth. The bench was on display at the Urban Play event 2 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, last month.

Urban Play is an international project by Droog Design, created and curated by Scott Burnham and presented as part of ExperimentaDesign Amsterdam 2008. See the movie about the Boombench . The following is from NL architects:

For the design of the ‘Boombench’ NL architects transformed a regular piece of street furniture into a sound system. This seemingly normal street bench reveals its hidden gimmick when it is activated via Bluetooth, allowing the public to play the music on their mobile phones. Street furniture becomes ghettoblaster and passer-by becomes DJ.
