images courtesy of ruilbankruilbank is a design intervention for public benches, which promotes social interaction and connects people through the exchange of reading material. amsterdam design studio pivot creative conceived a set of red metal clips that hug the outside of a park bench, attaching to its’ seat or back. visitors are encouraged to contribute and share by securing books and magazines to the apparatus.  the initiative hopes to encourage cultural trade and communal interaction in public spaces, navigating away from the boundaries of the computer where much of our social activity typically takes place. using existing elements found throughout the city, the project transforms a traditional outdoor bench into a place for community exchange.
