The eBenk is a new and interactive piece of street furniture for public space. Ebenk provides free wi-fi and charging possibilities for public use, but also electricity for happenings and activities. Serving from food trucks and mini concerts is made possible with electrical output from the bench. 

People and activities make an area feel safer. eBenk provides an arena for activities and happenings which may again lead to increased sense of safety in public spaces. A variety of activities is made possible with electrical output, but the bench is also a nice place to just sit down and charge your phone after sightseeing or chasing pokemons(!).
At you will find information such as location of the benches, calendar with future events/activities and how to get in touch if you want to arrange a public happening that require electricity.
