One of the most inspiring things about Rock Girl is the energy and enthusiasm that the artists and designers devote to create truly extraordinary public benches. Not to mention their time and talent. The creative community is demonstrating that beautiful things can create real change.
Paul du Toit’s bench, the latest in the Rock Girl Safe Space collection, says it all. The bench was designed in the shape of a symbolic “Rock Girl” and has a special place for plants and flowers. After a brief stint at the Design Indaba Expo, the first bench will be installed at St. Andrews Square in April 2012 and the sister bench will go to an NGO in Khayelitsha. See Paul’s video to learn more about how and why he created this bench.
