Soft Steel Bench
one of my bench design for "The Buses Stop Here" - City of Ferndale (MI) Bench Project.
original idea was to design a prototype bench which could be easy mass-produce by laser-cut machine. The pattern creates triple metaphor which are the imagenation of the history of woodward avenue, transforming the image of regular strip bench and also bring the image of interior fiber-cloth cover furniture to the exterior public space.
