SOCIALIZING POINT

The pyramidal form of the Stood-Up Stool creates a public meeting point that stands out of the urbanscape and attracts the eye of the passersby. Two hourglasses placed on each seat count the minutes of waiting, prooving the Stood-Up status of the punctual person.

Relevant to this day, Stood-Up-Stool is a socializing point encouraging face-to-face interactions as much, as it is a commentary to the current socializing trends.
