To encourage sociability, Assaf Israel has designed the D&A seating system for Joynout Studio

Chairs in public spaces are usually cramped and uninviting as people can hardly interact with others while sitting on. However, Joynout Studio in Israel has designed the D&A seating system, which comprises of three modular units, each two metres in length. Intended for use on campuses, the unique design offers a new type of seating for students’ use in public spaces.

The system is designed to allude to water running down a creek with rocks around. Users can sit on a rock to have an informal gathering to help evoke interactions. It can also be multiplied or subtracted to create different types of seating arrangements. Each sequence of units keeps a flowing form, like water, which encourages sociability. However, users can also opt to sit apart and just watch the world go by.

The material, made in Italy, is a high quality polyurethane leather-like fabric, and has a rough texture. Its characteristics highly fit the requirements for intensive use and high abrasion. The look is natural, and it is durable, requiring low maintenance. Available in array of different colours, the seating system is already in use across the globe, including Edith Cowan University, Perth; Ben Gurion Airport, Tel Aviv; and Nhow Gallery, Milan.
