The Essence of Great Design
Whatever the essence of great design is then French designer - Mathieu Lehanneur has it by the bucket load. Digital Break, set up on the Rond Point des Champs-Elysées in Paris is a unique place for people to sit and read or go online in comfort. The hard-wearing concrete swivel seats are equipped with plugs and have mini tables attached to rest an elbow, a book or a computer. And for those not online a large touch screen provides updated information about services in the city: guides, news and augmented reality for tourists and visitors.
