‘Steam 20′ bench by Bae Sehwa
Up until the ‘Steam 20′ bench, Bae Sehwa’s steamed bentwood furniture has had a rib-like structure that is reminiscent of a ship’s hull both in construction and shape. Steam 20 is a larger, more sculptural work, a departure from the vessel form with ribs that are closer together, except where they part to form sinuous water-like waves.
‘Kajen Hammock’ park bench by Thomas Bernstrand for Nola
Conventional wooden slats were used to craft the seat, backrest and armrests of the ’Kajen Hammock’ park bench by Thomas Bernstrand - but its design is completely unique, a metal frame encases the seat and attaches it to the metal base for spring-like comfort. In addition the wooden slats follow the contours of the body (the hammock part) creating a uniquely ergonomic experience, for a park bench.
‘Swell’ benches and stools by Rachel Griffin for Earnest Studio
‘Swell’ is a series of stools and benches which play with the conventional method of producing upholstered furniture. Instead of moulding massive blocks of foam, cutting them down to size, gluing the separate pieces to a wood frame and hand-sewing fabric on top, ‘Swell’ combines several steps of production into one by using the fabric and frame as the original mould for the foam.
‘Bench B’ by Konstantin Grcic for BD Barcelona (ES)
Konstantin Grcic’s ‘Bench B’ is a modular seating system that’s like a one-seater side chair that can expand, all but extruded, to a long bench of up to six meters. Bench B is part of BD Barcelona’s Extrusions collection. It can be used indoors or outdoors, it can have arms or not, and it can be upholstered or left with a pure aluminium finish.
