‘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.
‘And A And Be And Not’ paravent by Camilla Richter
Camilla Richter’s ‘And A And Be And Not’ is a foldable room divider composed of several coloured dichroic glass segments. Light sources and the position of the glass segments makes And A And Be And Not a “mood-of-the-light-machine” says Richter. “Light and shadow, reflection, transparency, distortion, revision and colours play in the object. This colourful impression is subtle to dynamic, always depending on time and motion.”
