“Hi, my name is…” brings together friends and strangers into better conversations. We believe that the most powerful part
of being human is sharing our stories with each other, and we hope to use the power of design to change behaviors by
reorienting how we sit, how we face each other, and how we talk so that we may be able to connect more deeply with one
Our public spaces can often be isolating or ,even, intimidating if you are alone, but our parklet enables people to share
public space through conversations. Our design is an iteration upon the tete e tete chair, using modern technologies and
fabrication, but holding true to the original experience. Weʼve included shading, an area for games and drinks, and
multi-modal transportation docks.
