I forgot how long it took to make this since I kept changing the designs. I got bored with the lamination. I wasn’t really sure how the end product would look like. I just kept on coming back to it while working on other studio furniture pieces. My dad had to help me with the design to make it structurally sound since its suppose to carry up to 8 people.
A sculptural bench providing couples with intimate, face-to-face seating, its S-curved shape allows users to interact, engage in conversation and view opposing perspectives from a shared standpoint.
During my exhibition, 8 people sat down on it and I was happy to see how successful it is as a conversation piece and how helpful my dad’s suggestions were.
