The Falco Neo is an innovative outdoor bench, commissioned by Falco BV
. It contains USB and wireless charging (Qi) points and a wireless internet access point, all powered by sustainable energy from a vandalism-proof solar panel placed in the middle of the bench. The seating is built up from glassfiber composites, made in collaboration with Parthian Technology
, and is designed to give the user several comfortable seating positions. An 1:1 scale prototype, including fully functional electronical system was built to demonstrate the design.
The prototype was exhibited at the Saxion 'Eindwerken 2016' exhibition as well as at the ‘Dag van de Openbare Ruimte 2016’.
