Tensioned Bench
Design, Fabrication

As part Melbourne Design Week 2020, Studio Edwards organised a group show entitled Alt.Material. 27 artists were invited to respond to the theme of Ductility by producing experimental furniture pieces.

My entry is made from threaded rods and two boards of formply; a bench made from an assembly of common construction materials.

Tension was applied to the bottom shelf, which added rigidity to the structure and created a natural bow in the seat and a surprisingly comfortable surface to sit on.
