“Desfrutar o Tejo” Art and Design in Lisbon
Wooden benches that look a lot like a cable car over the rails, "chaises longues” that look like a flying seagull, simple benches or benches shaped as logs, this is a portion of what you may find here.

The benches set up by the river, in a recent made pedestrian area, will be used in the remodeling project of this new public area in Cais do Sodré and Largo do Corpo Santo.
The exhibition is the result of a challenge made to five teams of architects and designers to propose pieces of furniture with focus on people's relationship with the city and the river Tagus. The teams drew their inspiration from unique Lisbon elements, such as the cable cars, the Portuguese cobblestone pavement or the benches of wooden slats.
