Since space is at a premium in today's urban homes and offices, the aim was to create a piece of furniture that is flexible, versatile and adaptable to the needs in a home or office.
The NYPD Roadblock Bench, inspired by the New York City road blocks, was originally built with a discarded NYPD road block. Hinges were used in an effort to preserve the original form of the road block as well as increase the functionality beyond it just being a bench — it can be made into a coffee table, a love seat and many other configurations to suit your needs whether in the study, the children's room or an office space.
"The Roadblock" is an example of jugaad, as it has been reversed engineered from found objects and may not have been possible to design using traditional design methodologies. Overall the design is highly innovative, functional, playful and experimental.
