A wooden bench that integrates. Here is the Oktagon in Poznań

Octagon is an urban piece of furniture, the form of which was developed during a workshop with local activists.The bench is made up of modules that can be combined to adapt the furniture to specific needs

Łukasz Spychaj from the Samo Studio was involved in the design of the piece of furniture, and its final form was influenced by workshops organised by the Local Activity Workshop in Poznań, which brings together activists

The octagon was set up on a plot of land leased from the city of Poznań for cultural purposes. As a result, a public space has been created from a wildly overgrown wasteland, which can be used by residents. It is a space for spending time together outdoors, for discussions or for organising small-scale cultural events. This is what the ‘Common Land’, a community garden located at 39 Wspólna Street, is intended to be

It was designed on the projection of a regular octagon with the axis of the entrance opening onto the plot. The form of the Octagon allows for many different sitting and lying positions. The object does not impose a specific position; this depends on the user’s will

The piece of furniture is entirely made of pine wood, which is in keeping with the principles of sustainable design. Next to the Oktagon, two pieces of urban furniture created as part of the Mood For Wood workshop were placed. We wrote about the latter HERE
