Heer bench aims to tackle the stigma attached to breastfeeding in public
Cool concept + design from Czech design firm 52hours, featured on Dezeen.
The bench, called Heer, is designed to offer mothers and babies a “small oasis of peace” in public spaces where they can come to rest, feed their child or simply isolate themselves from the hectic urban surroundings.
Ivana Preiss and Filip Vasic from 52hours wanted to provide a middle ground between comfort and discretion for mothers wanting to breastfeeding in public. The product would serve the needs of mothers and babies as well as challenging “often antagonistic cultural norms”.
