When future civilization is expected to be facilitated with ultra-modern appliances, effective transportation solutions and eco-friendly high raised buildings, Philly pods have been designed to give Philadelphia streets a unique appearance and the inhabitants a great place to seat. This monolithic seat can be arranged in a variety of patterns to meet up different needs and number of the users. To make the seating unique and comfortable, it features springy-ness which gives an extraordinary feel to the users when seating or standing up on it. Moreover, these seats can be lightened during evening through rims of translucent Corian that complements the overall appeal of the streets. Also, a shade can be incorporated over the seat during daytime to provide some protection from the burning sun.
