Inspired by the ebb and flow of city life, Please Be Seated merges innovation, sustainability and art. Constructed from sustainably sourced timber, the work is designed as a rippling wave of wood that rises up to form arches for people to walk through, and curves under to create spaces for people to sit, lie, and relax.
Designed by the acclaimed London-based Paul Cocksedge Studio, “Please Be Seated” made its debut in London Design Festival in 2019. A new edition was commissioned to tour across Swire Properties’ developments in Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and permanently installed in Taikoo Li Sanlitun, Beijing in 2022.
The Hong Kong’s edition of “Please Be Seated” joined Taikoo Place’s Artwalk in 2021.
