Unfolding bench

Program: Exhibition
Team: Office De Architectura
Sculptor: Gediminas Pašvenskas
Year: 2020

Our initial task was to design an outdoor exhibition, however, we completely changed the brief and suggested creating a piece of public furniture instead. We used an idea of an unfolding bench – a flexible gathering space imagined as an anchor for events, presentations or simply resting space.

The bench can be dismantled piece by piece and transported to another location. The layout and arrangement of the benches can be adjusted easily by one person.
