Designed in collaboration with LM Studio & Studio Block, Vancouver Bench is an outdoor seating piece inspired by our home city.
A stand alone bench that reflects the city in a multi-functional way. Aesthetically hinting at a transparent and sophisticated cultural fabric, and simultaneously producing a sitting surface that is perfectly fit for Vancouver's notorious seasonal weather.
Our design team collaborated with Laura Melling and Alyssa Lewis (LM Studio / Studio Block) to create Vancouver Bench for the pair’s installation Wonderment which was on view in Vancouver from October 1-8 2020.
We are interested in using perforation for a sitting surface to produce airflow, drainage and create subtle flexibility in material. The first in our line of seating named after cities, we are pleased to have collaborated with two Vancouver designers on a piece that represents our collective city.
Vancouver bench is made using 30-50% recycled .188″ aluminum and is 100% recyclable. Using marine grade materials, this powder coated form is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and is highly durable. Complete with mounting feet on both ends, the bench features two stainless steel fasteners that secure the bench to concrete anchors allowing for a quarter inch elevation.
