Alis: the hi-tech bench

It’s a bench design concept for the historical Battery Park in New York, concepted between both as commodity and art. The process of renewable plastic injection molding has been chosen, as well as in the manufacturing of several plastic playground equipment.

ALIS efficiently redistributes external forces through its composite skin system. This skin system maintains a constant surface enclosure thickness while responding to areas of higher impact stress by the integration of fiber bundles.

The networking of these bundles comes together to form deeper cross sections in material thickness thus providing optimum structural integrity. Subversive by day, these strands emerge as the sun sets to establish an alternate formal dimension.
Design: Edward Kim, Tommaso Casucci, Charles Jones, Mike Nesbit
