I guess everyone carries with them an archetype of a park bench. It is such a traditional form. Still I thought that it might be updated. Partly because it was fun and partly because traditional park benches are not always functional.
"Handikappriktlinjerna", the governments special guidelines, showed up to be very useful. Apart from making the benches functional for more people, the result was a new independent expression. No one will say "that is a bench for the disabled". It is a modern park bench. Period.
