• Cité du Design
    42000 Saint-Etienne


Ah but in Saint-Étienne, benches are not just for sitting on. The Bancs d’Essai (Test Benches) scheme offers more curious passers-by the chance to take part in a life-size test. They – you – can try out the latest in urban furniture created by artists and designers from all over the world.

This bench situated in the park behind the Cité du Design is just the job for a relaxing moment - even a little snooze! You can come alone or with someone, to share business secrets face to face or to confide in a friend en tête à tête.
