These aren't your parents' park benches.

Ribbons of aluminum arrived from the metal fabricator, NorCal, to await assembly at Atthowe’s warehouse where things were gearing up for installation. Unlike the railings, these are wider and shorter, and when three of them are placed side to side, they just so happen to form one of Powell Street’s new places to take a load off.
Again, like much of the promenade, the benches draw their
inspiration from the aluminum chassis of the all-new A7, the Audi
ASF® frame. While the twisting and sculpting of the metal is
intended to reflect the dynamic styling of the luxury sedan, we
prefer to see a piece of art that stands alone. We’ll let you
decide if you want to take a seat or stand back and admire.
