‘Minimum material usage and minimum making process create unexpected shape and new functionality’
I pursue aesthetically and functionally attractive art furniture with minimum making process without unnecessary material wastes. ONE BENCH starts from a single sheet of metal. First, a square metal sheet is divided into three parts and then two of them are bent with same curvature line. Lastly, top part weld with two bent parts to be cross each other in a 90 degree. In this way, making process is completed in just three step: laser cut, bending, and welding. Besides, all material are used without waste. Crossed two bottom parts with U-shape curve make viewers feel balance and tension, simultaneously. Also, the object has sufficient function as a bench. Structure from designer's intention and minimum process for it not only shows pure charm of metal but also creates formative function and aesthetics from unexpected shape. Top part is used as a bench and U shape provides storage space for bag or objet. Square shape of top part and two curved line of bottom part make beautiful visual contrast. In terms of material, I designed it to have appropriate weight and balance for seating by using stainless steel with great hardness. ONE BENCH will pretty match well with indoor or outdoor environment in everyday living space.
