Urban designs and sciences are always in contact with the industrial design with urban furniture being an embodiment of this relation. Due to the changing dynamics of design and technology, there is an invisible relation shift between those disciplines. Industrial design is expanding to interaction, interface and service design, and urban design changing as the management of data created by the city. As a result, two areas are crossing again as data-generating city and data-processing industrial design and at the middle of that: the new urban furniture.
