ConvoStation is a brightly coloured communal rocking chair – intended to bring strangers together in today’s ever-moving and ever-busy lifestyles. The design incites a conversation between strangers, generates awareness of people’s surroundings through motion, and opens the opportunity for new friendships and chance encounters.
ConvoStation was created by The United Suburbs and supported by Universal Spraying Ltd.
ConvoStation is one of the five winning benches from the Sitting Pretty design competition from the London Festival of Architecture and Network Rail.
The competition was conceived by the London Festival of Architecture to consider how better station seating might look, with the potential for winning ideas to be replicated across stations by Network Rail in the future.
The benches can be found across four London Stations: Waterloo, Victoria, Charing Cross and London Bridge.
