This bench features a design using conic surfaces to transition between flat areas. It employs a geodesic pattern on orthogonal planks, applied to the bench's three-dimensional form, creating lines that subtly shift from flat to curved surfaces. The bench consists of two aluminum shells, separated by a gap supported by a plywood frame, which also reinforces its flat sitting areas. This structure and the etched geodesic lines create an illusion of volume on the aluminum. The bench's design, with its conic bends, positions two flat seating areas at an angle, fostering interaction and collaboration between users.
