Softwalks makes seats, tables, lighting, and planters that attach to sidewalk scaffolding, beautifying the area and creating a place for people to stop and hang out without clogging foot traffic. Their temporary spaces have only been up for a day at a time, but their Kickstarter campaign aims to fund a more prolonged set up in various locations around the city.
