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 product is designed by polish designer, Karolina Tylka and produced in Poland.
There are different lengths, from 1 up to 3 meters and various material possibilities. Moving elements can be made of; plywood, MDF, injection-moulded plastics, cellulose and honeycomb cardboard.
Frame is made of stainless or galvanized steel.
There is also a “soft” version for indoor use where seat surface is finished with leather or felt.
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.
Coffee bench was presented at 100% DESIGN in London and INTERIEUR 2010 in Kortrijk with the support of the city of POZnan*.
