The Bench That Collects Rainwater

The Water Bench collects rainwater and makes a good public sitting space. It’s intended to look like a Chesterfield sofa and has on its surface, grooves that lead the water inwards. The water ends up in storage tanks which are located either inside the bench or outside, under the ground.

The Water Bench was created by MARS Architects together with the BMW Guggenheim Lab.
MARS Architects is a Shanghai-based company.
