Bench Mysteries of Oxford

Oxford, England ~ February 18, 2010

I'm convinced that these modern-looking benches were made just to confuse people like me. Alternating with the ones that look like rolltop desks (above) are flat benches like the ones below. The curved benches were obviously quite wet, or I would have tried them to see if they're comfortable. Any clues?

we must give up comfort for the sake of art...
sometimes, not such a good idea!

I would have tried them too, they look so cool!

If you ask me, these benches were designed for minimum comfort to discourage lounging.

It 's the first time I've seen chairs with a structure so special !!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps the designer was a little tipsy when he/she sat down to put bench to paper?

You might as well sit on the ground 'cause that's probably where you'd end up if you tried to sit on the bench!

Thanks, Tapirgal, for you very nice comment on Creative Confections. I wish I was able to draw like that - maybe some years ago - not now.

I think the roll-top benches are more for leaning against while waiting for a bus or something.

Or maybe just to get people asking questions!
