10 – Bench over troubled waters! (source)
This rather impressive bench inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge was found in the Brooklyn Heights area and is a true master class on how to make a bench.

9 – “Quick! Get some change!” (source)
What you see above is 100% real! Fabian Brunsing was sick to death of not having anywhere to sit while he ate his sandwich in his work hour so he invented this quite frankly scary looking coin operated park bench! Just place a coin in the slot and you get 30mins to sit down and relax. But take too long and you will know it!

8 – “Please feel free to take a seat….Mwahahahaahh!!!” (source)
Don’t worry, what you are looking at is real but it is just a piece of art by Cornelia Konrad and is her attempt to try to reconsider our own environment. And if I saw this I really would reconsider sitting on it!

7 – A park bench fit for a fail whale! (source)
The “Tweet Seat” might well look like a normal bench But when someone sits down it triggers a camera which takes a photograph of you sat on the seat and sends it to the @tweetingseat twitter feed! This is a park bench with a heavy dose of nerd added to it. But also kind of a interesting idea that is well worth looking up!

6 – Sit down, read a book while sat down on a book! (source)
The main city of Istanbul is promoting reading by placing these incredible book shaped park benches all over the city! And what a great idea it is. The more people who read the more that will appreciate a good book rather than some digital representation on a kindle.

5 – Sit down, relax because it is only art! (source)
This amazing piece of art is called “Spaghetti Bâle” by Pablo Reinoso and is supposed to represent human though waves when sat on a park bench. I will stick with the old saying “I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like” And I like this a lot!

Located in a park in the city of Stockholm is this amazing co-operation inspired sea-saw bench. While it is kind of amazing I have to wonder what the odds are of two people weighing EXACTLY the same!?! Because if one is even slightly heavier or lighter than the other, someone will be eating their sandwich in the clouds!

Seen at a Skatepark just outside of London is this amazing park bench made from recycled skate boards. For me it was a great use of recycled materials and it also looks rather cool. But I would be worried about splinters going into my rear.

Seen inside a popular Bangkok shopping mall is this incredible ”shark attack” bench! Need to get off your feet and relax after shopping all day! Maybe it is best you just keep on walking.

1 – “Sir? Can you please stop licking the bench.” (source)
Not only is this very cleaver advertising but it is also amazing to look at! If ever there was a park bench that I would want for my back garden it is this. Sadly it is not for sale but maybe someone could make some very serious money from making these because I know I would buy one and I’m sure many others will as well.
