Uni Benches

Uni Benches are sturdy, lightweight (9lbs), and stackable, providing seating for two people side-by-side. They can be easily arranged for readings, workshops, and events. The bench material is translucent polypropylene and can be made in custom colors. We also make a custom bench dolly.

We usually ship ten benches with each programming kit, but the number is flexible. Here’s a tip: we’ve found that the number of benches you deploy is the best gauge of the size of your installation in public space. So, when creating a pop-up reading room, the number of benches (not the number of books) that will define the scale of your event and staffing needs for the day.

 

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 600 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
 
For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
