Inheritance Bench


YEAR

2020

MATERIALS

steel, rocks, TV-screens, headphones



The Inheritence Bench was developed for the Nostalgia For A World That Never Existed instalation. It combines the nostalgia of traditional furniture with the sleekness of contemporary design.

Transforming a traditional woven seat through plasti vacuum forming, creates a lightweight, translucent surface that mimics the textures of the original straw. The resulting three dimensional texture reinforces the plastic making th seat structurally sound. Individual plastic seats are embedded into a minimal steel construction, which can be adjusted to carry any number of seats.
