Reef bench : This superb bench by Dutch designers Remy & Veenhuizen was created for a high school in Zoetermeer, Netherlands. Students must be able to play with the environment in order to enjoy relaxation and creativity. The lively bench makes use of natural elements in trying to offer an escape from the modern, static impression left behind by the high school building.
Bruno Catalano, french artist. "When we travel , we leave even unconscionably ,parts of us in the places , our vibrations , sounds , words, don't get lost in the space instead they increase in the place and stay there timelessly. Or it is just the places that are steeling from us our lives and souls parts which still invisible to us."

Battery Park, New York City Although I never lived in NYC I would fly into NJ drive across to NYC and park near to Battery Park. One of my life missions was to see "ALL" of New York City. From this bench I could start my hikes. I went hiking in old shorts and a T-shirt with a beat up backpack and maybe $20 in my shoes. Over 8 different trips I hiked all the Avenues on Manhattan sometimes as far as I think it was 186th street. Funny i've never met anyone else who has done this?
