My friend Harry from the Brooklyn Kitchen sent me this photo from Governor’s Island. I feel like I’ve seen this design before. Seems so familiar. Anyway, good stuff. Clean, simple. Clear. And a great way to get someone who’s passed out in a park back to bed.

Update, 20 March 2013: A commenter from Weltevree, a Dutch product label, points out that the above bench is a copy of the Wheelbench they sell as designed by Rogier Martens. See the comment below. The resemblance is unquestionable. And I wonder if the design is not older still. Shaker or pre-colonial even. Nonetheless, we appreciate the footnote, Weltevree, and you have absolutely beautiful things on your site! Thank you.
