SEISMIC Bench

DesignPhiladelphia Bench Competition

In 2011 we were invited to participate in a bench design competition sponsored by the Fabrication Lab at the University of Pennsylvania.

With the constraints of having to use only one 4' x 8' piece of plywood, the focus was put towards contemporary fabrication. The design pulls out the natural beauty of wood grain with an unfamiliar texture of a ripple along its surface using developed out of grasshopper and milled with a CNC.

The entry took 1st place in the professional category.
