The Solar Inside concept bench, is not your average park bench, this bench is solar powered.  Made of thin-film solar, it turns the bench into a nighlight, charge up station and wifi hotspot rolled into one.

Built from recycled plastic and recycled aluminium, the bench works fine in a variety of weather conditions and is clearly eco-friendly too.

The concept bench is unfortunately still very much a concept designed by three student designers, but with a bit of luck (and investment), we’ll all be working from sunny park bench’s soon.
