Your Bench!

Athens BenchMarkThere has been going on a competition here in Athens the last few months called Athens Benchmark – an industrial design contest sure to give a makeover of new benches throughout the city.

The winner Mr Aris Stathis was named yesterday. His design called My Bench [seen in the photo] has a bicycle parking space as well as built-in Data Matrix offering extensive opportunities to use the Internet and mobile telephones.

But the competition is not over yet. You can offer a bench to the city and a personal message can be etched on a special surface on the rear of the bench. The oanly thing you have to do is to submit an application and they will contact you for the details.

Romanticism or vanity? And what would you write?
