Coffee bench © Karolina Tylka 2002 – a project with adjustable table space within. The idea is about supporting smart use of space. The inspiration came from the need of having a coffee in the garden and no space to place the cup or newspaper. Space of seat and table is adjusted by rotating elements of the bench.

The bench was at first thought as a garden furniture but it can be also used for different public spaces like parks, squares, halls and lobbies.
