Aura Bench

One in five Canadians will suffer from a mental health disorder in their lifetime – the most common of which is General or Social Anxiety. The Aura bench is designed to provide comfort, both physically and emotionally, to users in high traffic areas that could act as triggers for anxieties – such as subway stops, shopping malls, and bus stops. Through the use of light and colour therapy, as well as the overall design, the user will feel calm, safe and secure.
