This bench is made of one monolith twisted pipe There are three types of materials depending on the environment: solid-surface stone-like material, acrylic shiny plastic, semi-transparent acrylic material. The third one allows the bench to look solid at daylight and be transparent at night when the internal illumination starts to glow. For this version of the bench there is a solar panel mounted on the top of it so it can have independent power source. The simple shape and smooth design can ensure the weather resistant, anti-vandal and easy to clean. A city sculpture that can be also useful.
