A Bench “Tall” is a children’s toy for a playground, a cartoon character, an observatory, a hideout, and a bicycle garage. It provides an unobstructed view of the open air. What is more, climbing the ladder resembles climbing a tree house.

The object creates an expressive character and is personified through its shape (slenderness, breaking of the vertical elements…).

In a competition for the design of art benches „Sit down Zagreb,” the tall bench won one out of 18 equally relevant first prizes. It was chosen between 322 submitted works.
