Very nice. However, it reminds me of a window seats at a hip cafe.

oh this is one of those designs that tries to reinvent how we sit. more people will climb up and sit on the roof than figure out how to fit in one of those slanted wall cubicles.

Sorry to break it to you but, punto means point. Ferma is stop. That's why they call it a ferma all'autobus

PUNTO

Submitted by renben on July 30, 2009

Punto is the literal translation of “Stop” in Italian. As a regular commuter of public transportation, the design is approached to create a different experience visually and sensually while waiting for a bus.

The concept was derived from the simple postures of everyday life – reclining, sitting and standing. These various positions are carved and imprinted into a single box; thereby distinguishing it from a conventional bus stop. The intention is to create a visually appealing structure which would be perceived as a piece of art and design rather than just a simple shelter simultaneously rendering practicality and comfort.

This “Punto” design is just another stop, on our way of re-designing, re-thinking and igniting a renewed interest into the everyday public services and spaces which we often go unnoticed and have become mundane and obsolete.
