Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.

Sentosa puts up a pretty flower show every Chinese New Year and this year was no different.

On one of our strolls in Sentosa, we spied this intriguing gem sitting on GreenTurf artificial turf.

The Coil Bench by LOOK Architects using wood from National Stadium

Designed by LOOK Architects, this bench was made from wood salvaged from the National Stadium benches.

The old stadium was taken down a few years ago to make way for a new one and the Urban Redevelopment Authority

commissioned some architects and designers to re-fashion the wood from the old benches into new ones.

So this bench, named The Coil, ended up at Sentosa.

We love the ingenuity of this bench. Where does it start and where does it end?

Needless to say, the kids had a blast going round and round, meeting somewhere on the bench, and having a laugh about it.

Design that is fun, beautiful and useful always serves the people well, and inspires others.
