It happens the benches are part of Danish artist Jeppe Hein’s installation Please Touch the Art, which features sculptures designed specifically for public interaction. (So go ahead and climb.)
The exhibition includes two other types of work besides the benches: Appearing Rooms, a series of “rooms” formed out of jets of water; and a Mirror Labyrinth, featuring evenly-spaced pieces of mirror-polished stainless steel.
Learn more at Brooklyn Bridge Park. (They also provide a printable scavenger hunt to mark off the pieces you've seen.)
