BOTTLEBENCH / 2011
Bottlebench is a social furniture project. The shape of the bench is based on the bottom of a plastic bottle.The bench targets use for public and private spaces with the intention of having young crowds interact with the piece of furniture and each other. It gives the users a comfortable and relaxing way of sitting and the experience of a round table discussion. The use behavior of the bottlebench is tailored to the young. Young (minded) people often have the habit of hanging, sitting and making themselves comfortable wherever they can. This ground sitting behavior is translated in to a piece of furniture where the users sit comfortably on the ground. It decides whether it sits up or lies sprawled.
The bench consists of five stackable elements which are easy to manufacture and transport.
