YOU MAY is a workspace, a bench, a meeting point, a bar and stage for the urban public space.

After the Covid Pandemic, people finally want to meet, hug and be with each other again. Fidel Peugeot & Karl Emilio Pircher

“Probably nobody has noticed that this piece of furniture is actually evil- because it makes all those old benches in the shadows look rather shabby! Nobody will use them anymore, they will be deserted! This piece does the exact opposite, it says: Hey, you look good! Come here, come to me!” Gregor Eichinger, architect and professor at ETH Zurich about YOU MAY

YOU MAY be outdoor/ indoor furniture
Which furniture for the public space meets the requirements of 21st century’s urban citizens? Walking-Chair asked this question and the answer was not satisfying at all: There were almost no places for the modern homo sapiens to communicate, to meet or interact except of shaky, old park benches or restaurant tables which commit to consume drinks or food. Tired of the urban boredom, Walking-Chair designed YOU MAY, a furniture item which fulfills the needs of modern communication by providing space to talk, to work interactively, to relax, to party and many more. The weather proof coating and the solid weight make YOU MAY an ideal furniture piece for all types of public space. It perfectly works in a train station waiting hall as well as in front of an Alpine chalet up in the mountains.
