Curious. What is the object, to the left?

This bench screams: "don't touch me!" Or perhaps, "I'm not for sleeping." I'm curious about that black thing on the side too.

Yeah, what's the thingy on the left?

Sorry guys, I think it looks like a huge toilet pump.

I think those dividers are to keep people with larger rumps from spilling into the next seat.

Does not look like the coziest of benches. But I like the idea of fusing two together.

PS: The black thing on the left is an urn for cigarette. The design supposedly keeps the smell of tobacco inside. They are very popular in the US.

I've begun to notice those smoke things, but they are huge and intrusive, despite the idea of blending more with the scenery.

Beautiful and peaceful park.That black thing for the cigarettes is different indeed!

Thanks, Halcyon. I don't think I've ever seen anything like that before.
