An award-winning short by Kobi Vogman. To wit:

A wool puppet and a wooden bench are the characters in a huge foggy world. The puppet wants to leave but find it harder then expected.


Two awareness-raising and practical designs in Vancouver by Spring Advertising for the Canadian charity Rain City Housing, which provides accommodation for the homeless.

BACKSTORY: The lonely battle of the chatty yellow bench (Conor Pope, Irish Times) (excerpt only, requires subscription)

(Thanks Darren Cleary)


Filmed on the longest day of 2010 (June 21) and freshly uploaded.

The bench beside Baggot Street Bridge gets many and varied visitors. This film captures some of the people that passed by and others that used the bench. Arguing couples, tourists, dog walkers, smokers, children and people just taking some time out..

Music by Cormac Phelan

Bonus feature: The thoughtless Coke can lady:

Oh, the humanity.

Balloon Bench by Japanese design collective h220430. Inspired by the feeling of floating felt by the main character in the 1953 French movie, “Le Ballon Rouge”.

The ‘floating’ illusion is created by suspending the bench from the ceiling by four anchors concealed by the balloon shapes. Which also light up.


The ad agency DDB Auckland altered benches to press an advertisement for New Zealand clothing chain Superette into the bare legs of sitters.

Now that’s branding.
