Interesting concept. Have you tried it again with an expansion adaptation?

i dont have the plans for this bench , actually i woulden build this the way i did . 8 yaers ago i wasent sure what i am doing so i I composed piece by piece with glue and Screws !!! which i thought would give it strength. the mahogony “works” and i didnt know how much then and it was quite fragile for a sitting furniture . i was Pretentious stupid to take it to a design shop in Tel Aviv and luckily it has broken beffor any one bought it. it was a lesson for me even though i am still wolking on the edge with my thin wood furnitures

Its form is beautiful Aviad, your only mistake was calling it a piece of furniture instead of a piece of sculpture

That’s a hard lesson to learn wood movement. ugh… amazing concept… that is the risk we take for pushing the limits of ourselves and our medium. Beautiful.

Great Design. Even though it broke it looks great, you’ll never know until you try!
