Good Design: Seats

Wherever I go I observe where people chose to sit in public to see if the design and location of the seats and space work. 
These large bean bags are scattered around a small inner city green space.

Some people sat on them while they looked at an art work – a tall, rectangular screen with changing colours.

These two people chose to sit on the bean bags while they had their coffee rather than sit in the classic Adirondack chairs.

People put their feet up on the bags and on foot stools, a sign they felt comfortable sitting in the space.
They dragged the bean bags around the space to create their own temporary environments.
I decided this seating area is successful.
