Standard benches are based on the model that occurred in the Netherlands and Belgium since the '60s of the last century. In the Netherlands, the bench had its heyday in the '70s, '80s and '90s. It is placed in virtually any form of public space, such as playgrounds, parks, shopping areas and even near schools.
From around 2000, a bench with a more modern look is chosen more often. However, this standard bench is still available and it is known as indestructible.
The standard bench excels in the austere and efficient design and appearance. The two concrete elements which actually are not only the legs, but also keep the backrest and seat together, are slightly modified by the decades for a more ergonomic seat shape.
Robust wooden planks, depending on the exact model 4 to 6 pieces, form the seat and backrest.
Trees, other vegetation, and human figures on the picture of the common benches are not included.
