A specific feature of the Vissershop district is it's street life, which was one of the reasons to develop outdoor furniture with a certain indoor quality. An other special feature of Vissershop is the way it is situates at the river the Zaan. This fact was translated by the way the benches are situated. Proposals for instance include an evening bench (near a street light), a hedge bench (it's back feet in a lawn) and a dock bench (situated on the waterfront). The benches are constructed using special decorated slats of wood. The unique character of each bench is determined by its colour, composition and visible construction.
