Nescafé Italia is promoting the role of coffee in building relationships, with the “Nescafé Hello Bench, a specially designed red bench. Creating new relationships it’s harder than we think, even when we are in the midst of hundreds of thousands of people. To do so, we need a spark, a new opportunity and, of course, a red mug. During the Salone del Mobile in Milan pedestrians were offered a cup of coffee and a chant to sit on the Nescafé Hello Bench, a bench that gets shorter when two people sit on it. Two sensors activate the bench and let two strangers get closer: an unexpected way to break the ice and start a conversation and a connection.
