Tasks / Seat Creation And Insertion Phase 1: Schematics

"The quality of any urban environment can be measured by whether there are convenient, comfortable places for pedestrians to sit."

Design a way to implement new, comfortable forms of seating in the city, or to convert an uncomfortable seating arrangement into a comfortable one.
You may start from scratch, or use already-existing seating schematics (like "The Bench") as a base for your work. In this phase you do not need to implement your system, only design it and begin to determine how it could be implemented.
