U Bench

UBench_LUUR_Side2_shopify_1024x1024

The U Bench is an exploration in the simplicity of the circle.  Each section is rolled from a sheet of steel to form a half circle.  The two parts are welded together with one round side up and one round side down, forming a complete circle when viewed directly from the side.Read More

Timber. La panca libera

Il nuovo progetto di Diego Chilò per Bedont, Timber, è una panca libera di muoversi nello spazio, in grado di ridisegnare e modellare l’ambiente nel quale è inserita creando piccole aree per la collettività in locali pubblici, ma utilizzabile anche in particolari spazi abitativi. Un oggetto essenziale e allo stesso tempo dinamico.

Costruire in modo solido è sempre stata una delle esigenze dell’uomo. Il legno e la pietra sono elementi materici che, fin dall’antichità, l’uomo utilizza per le sue realizzazioni. Ecco allora che una semplice trave, lavorata con tecniche di incastro eseguite meccanicamente, diventa una seduta solida e allo stesso tempo mobile, mediante le tre ruote.
Un oggetto fortemente materico che ricorda anche i giochi di gioventù.
Timber è tra i vincitori del concorso di Confartigianato Imprese: NUTRIRE IL FUTURO: ENERGIE DALLA TRADIZIONE, scelta da una giuria composta da rappresentanti delle seguenti istituzioni: ADI Associazione per il Disegno Industriale, Triennale di Milano, Padiglione Italia EXPO2015, Confartigianato Imprese, uno storico del design e un designer, e sarà esposta a Expo dal 12 al 18 giugno all’interno del Padiglione Italia.

HONG KONG URBAN FURNITURE

Designed for the city by Rocker-Lange Architects, the unique outdoor bench offers users a variety seating options. the idea came out from the Hong Kong’s search for an architectural identity instead of adapting a rigid and single direction. The bench is an adaptable and changeable structure that integrate different components such as recycling containers or flower pots. The vertical elements can embody advertisement and educational information instead of box element can contain trash collectors, flower buckets or mail boxes.

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

Zaha Hadid’s urban bench

The concept behind the Serac Bench  is evoked by the image of a block of ice formed by intersecting crevasses in a glacier. Developed as an urban sculpture for seating and resting, the Serac Bench seamlessly integrates with its context. Its striated articulations emerge from the landscape, each layer taking its own unique trajectory in reaction to latent forces that disperse – and ultimately coalesce – the many strata of the bench to generate its overall formal composition.

The design rediscovers the fluid, continuous nature of Zaha Hadid’s work – exploring relationships between full and void, object and background, form and function; an evolutionary pattern that is evident throughout her repertoire.
The bench has been developed in resin quartz, a tough and durable material that when shaped into a more curvaceous form, transitions into a softer, fluid and tactile surface. The sparkling crystal balances a stunning light play with mesmerizing depth.
