CURVED BENCHES

Curved Benches exploit the flexibility of wood to assimilate the curves of the body. Alluding to a fundamental building system, the benches form a trilitic structure, where two vertical plates perform the base and an horizontal curved one the seating. The elements suggest a subtle balance in which the parts seem just touch each other.

Although composed of few elements the set creates a solid and unexpected visual block. The juxtaposition of the curved plate with the vertical planes generates a slight encounter, marked by a linear shadow at its junction. The project seeks to dialogue with the Brazilian tradition of carpentry through a minimalist language.
