The ‘CAMDEN’ Bench


As Architects work with designers, the Police and your local Council to produce public spaces not so friendly to the homeless, graffers or skating public, we are faced with the latest ‘innovation’ in safeguarding our community and the sustainability of design, apparently.

Factory Furniture have developed a bench which is both ergonomic and sustainable. It is supposed to eliminate anti-social behaviour such as skaters, vandalists, drug dealers and homeless people trying to sleep in a city that never sleeps….

You can see/skate this monstrosity at Great Queen St, Camden; High Holborn, Camden. First one to back torque gets 10 points!

Nice try Camden, but no.
