At both the Zwarte Cross festival and the Noorderzon festival, Ongeremd’s wheelchair bench was seriously put to the test by a wide range of different users.

Being wheelchair-bound is not only a physical challenge, it also comes with social limitations as people around you tend to talk over your head and forget you are there. When the people behind Ongeremd saw this happening first hand, they decided to develop a possible solution in the form of a retractable bench attached to one of the wheels of a wheelchair.
