Piece of outdoor furniture designed for the schoolyard of the village of Verrières (Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France).

Inspired by the local industrial and natural landscape, the bench's use changes according to the weather: on rainy days, it collects water, creating a water mirror reflecting the environment. In summer, it provides a place to sit in the shade.

The project was developed over six months of research at the school↗, including workshops with the children and discussions with the teachers which were crucial in the development of the bench.
