unfolding urban space by elen-del unfolding urban space by elen-del
The city we live in is full of images, faces, stories and emotions. A close book awaiting to be opened. In this city, a bench should be like a ripped page; it makes us stop. This is my main concept; a piece of paper, suddenly unfolding the city, creating a space protected of the urban noise.
The materials used are steel, wood and concrete for the base. All of them are resistant to exterior weather conditions. Moreover, the whole structure can be assembled and slit up, so as to be used in more than one space.


Created for "loving outdoors" competition, in November 2010.

sorry to burst your bubble.. but they have benches like this at a lot of campsites. they don't go back and forth, so they're obviously not as cool, but they make benches that overhang just like this.

Can you be a little more specific about "back & forth"? Do you mean the curnature?
Thanks for your comment though, taking the time to comment is appreciated!
