NYC Javits Center Benches

Based upon the classic design found in Central Park, these benches at the Jacob Javits Convention Center Plaza depart from the norm in a delightfully whimsical fashion. The complex curves help animate the plaza and also provide different seating possibilities for the parkÂs users. Each slat is made up of numerous 1/4' thick laminations; if set end to end the laminations would total around thirty miles in length.
