Inspired by the crocodile - the Nimes city symbol - Philippe Starck designed this bus stop as a long, winding line of dark green seats slithering out from the front and back ends of a monumental shelter. The seats are small, solid cubes, and the shelter is a covered, open-sided cube. Both are of crocodile-green marble. All is pristine and simple, though the necessary accouterments - a bus schedule panel and public telephone - are incorporated into the pillars of the shelter. It's an attractive and functional design and a excellent exemplar of public art.
