Phibonna is a multi-purpose sit furniture which allows sitting to meet different indoor public spaces such as exhibition halls, museums and shopping malls. The look should be simple but sophisticated, the function should meet different purposes and the materials, such as UV rays tube, should answer the needs of pandemic process. It has been determined that UV rays are successful in cleaning viruses and that polyethylene keeps its form stable against UV ray. The design inspiration obtained from a desire for nature. We searched codes from nature and Phi code is the answer of our question. Fibonacci spirals occur widely in nature. Phi code identifies our design in geometrical golden ratio proportions. Golden ratio creates definitive characteristics of our design as well as aesthetic expression. Phi code is defined as growth behaviour in nature. When more than one sit unit comes together, it begins to grow by creating new spaces where it is located. Construction of the bench is convenient because no supplementary elements are required. It is truly different from what already exists as a sit furniture because design itself questions traditional sit furniture in indoor public places.
