Uni Benches

Uni Benches are sturdy, lightweight (9lbs), and stackable, providing seating for two people side-by-side. They can be easily arranged for readings, workshops, and events. The bench material is translucent polypropylene and can be made in custom colors. We also make a custom bench dolly.

We usually ship ten benches with each programming kit, but the number is flexible. Here’s a tip: we’ve found that the number of benches you deploy is the best gauge of the size of your installation in public space. So, when creating a pop-up reading room, the number of benches (not the number of books) that will define the scale of your event and staffing needs for the day.


About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
