It provides on-demand seat on anti-parking pollers, thus makes restrictive elements socially useful.
The original piece was ordered by a local cultural association (Bartok Bela Boulevard) for their spring festival. Its goals were to provide a seat, be interactive, show BBB colors, draw attention of pedestrians. The quest was successful, we made a street furniture out of a poller. After its good reception, we decided to cooperate with Fablab (DDMP OCFI) to optimize the design for DDMP. Now it is more minimalistic and CNC-routable from 1 side, this technology is available in every Fablab around the world.
It can be easily mounted on a poller with 2 collars/clamps. Maximum of 3 Poller Flowers can be attached to the same poller(side-by-side). The original 3D modell was ported to parametric design software, so material thickness and poller radius can be adjusted on demand.
The design files and manual is available on wikifactory: https://projects.fablabs.io/+fablabbudapest/poller-flower
