SEAt

Back Download

The SEAt is public furniture that was installed on a pedestrian bridge over the sea along the west coast of Korea. Realised as an open concept, it discretely accommodates the different needs of visitors by offering varying typologies of “standing”, “sunbed” and “amphitheatre”. Collaborating with the glass wall as part of the design, it allows visitors to explore the view of the landscape effortlessly and comfortably and to feel as if they were sitting on the sea. Developed as a landscape sculpture for seating, viewing and resting, the SEAt encourages visitors to pause during their journey and embrace the vast drama of the seascape on this scenic seat.
