A Floating Yellow Bench - Photo of the Day

In Ithaca, NY a  sinuous yellow bench, (2-inch resin, color: Chroma Marigold*2) is illuminated from below making it look like it is floating.  

The curve and depth of the seat give Cornell students a variety of sitting and/or lounging options. 

They said the color yellow was chosen to evoke the sense of sunlight, something rare in the Ithaca climate. 

My thought: it also cheers people up and stimulates the production of serotonin which makes you happy.  Here is to more yellow in school settings!


  1. Thanks for the seating tip, Jan! I live right by Cornell University and never noticed the benching. I could use a little more serotonin after this long cold snowy winter. Happy Spring!
