Public Furniture

‘Public Furniture’ is a newly coined word combining Public Art, a term used in the field of art, and Street Furniture, a term for urbanology. Street furniture includes not only existing street furniture like post boxes, phone booth, traffic lights, trash bins, benches, road signs, public bathrooms, and bus stops but also the visual culture of streets like billboards and neon signs. "Sculpture works", which belong to the Rest Area Equipment of Street Furniture, are also included in this category. Public furniture is street furniture manufactured in the perspective of public art. Thus, the 2006 Sea Art Festival will display street furniture manufactured in the perspective of public art on the roads and sidewalks of Haeundae Beach. Public furniture is not just limited to art, but rather, a kind of public art project open to architecture and design.
