Is this a couch?

Researching an IMDb poll suggestion for unusual chairs in films (nonthrones).
Have a seat!

So is this a couch?

If I find too many options for my suggestion, I'll change the poll to include superniche of dining chairs.

To me it looks like a bench in an airport. A seat with space for handluggage.
First class with red opholstry, ekonomy class just plain white plastic.

I agree that that is a bench.

Here's some cool movie chairs:

It's a bench. But I guess I didn't know that there was a distinction between couch and bench. Can it be said that benches are public couches? Just belaboring the point. Wink

I'm going to see if I can upload this picture to IMDb if they don't have it. Looks like Clockwork Orange. Very Happy

@tsarstepan,
Me, I think of couches as having quite a fair amount of comfortable "stuffing" to sit on and lean back against, whether or not they have armrests. So, no, I wouldn't call the bench in the photo a couch.

@tsarstepan,
Yes it is a clockwork orange

I was going to say to boomer how amazing it is one can identify a film by even just a portion of a still.

I had to scroll to see it, and as soon as I got past the first step below the upper couch, I knew where it was from. Evenbefore I saw the woman in her what looks like a sensory deprevation chamber.

I was hoping it was the seating on the new subway cars.

@tsarstepan,
A bench is made of wood or plastic and you can have one in your garden or it can be a public park.
There are also benches for indoors.
This one is from South End on Sea and like it.

@saab,
Benches are often made of concrete too. Occasionally they are made out of stone.

@ossobucotemp,
And metal too, let's not forget our metal benches.

Yes. Screencaptured from the IMDb image gallery (where ultimately the only images I can use for the poll ... though it looks like it's gotten easier now to download images from offsite to their respective image gallery).

#squeee! And I found two great images online and uploaded them to IMDb. Couldn't screencapture the Youtube video because it's a tad blurry.

You ain't going to find anything on that one. I coined it when I wrote the thread. I'll consider making an Urban Dictionary entry for it.

I didn't recognize your image as being from 2001 but seeing it mentioned reminded me of the space station in that movie:
