Good furniture brings life to public spaces
The effect of furniture in the public domain is frequently underestimated. Good furniture is crucial to an optimal use of public spaces. In turn, properly used public spaces are a prerequisite for busy cities, participation and social integration. Such spaces create genuine encounters and interexchange between people of all ages and thereby increase psychological and physical well-being. Studies show that health can be improved and medical costs reduced if the amount of time that older people spend in the public domain is increased.
