After GjaltProducties’ Hieke Aardema had seen the iconic wooden platform benches in the New York subway, she was determined to bring them, newly made, to the Dutch market. And so it happened. With permission of the original makers, the New York Metrobank is now being offered in the most seen six-seat version, and recently also in the original four-seat size. Different types of wood and finishing are available. Exclusively for OBJECT 2017, graffiti artists have joined hands to make a one-time version in honour of the New York subway, which was in the early seventies the common birthplace of both the bench and modern street art.
