Bench boxes

While hardly ideal for allweather shedworking, these rather nice bench boxes in steel and oak with copper exterior by Pushak at Snefjord, Norway, are rather natty. Here's what the designers say about them:
The site of the road stop is a paradox. Oftentimes, the hardest winds blow off the sea, and yet the most attractive view is toward the fjord. The obvious response in order to shield tourists from the wind would be to construct a view-blocking wall. Instead three ”bench-boxes” prefabricated at a local wharf dot the area, and their differing orientations allow visitors to choose where to sit according to wind and sun conditions. Two persons or groups can use each box at once while they retain some privacy.
