In 2015, we joined forces with Architecture 00. Together, we enjoy collaborating in a shared environment where strategic, urban and social designers, architects, programmers and economists practice design beyond its traditional borders. 00 work with individuals, governments, corporations and communities to solve problems and anticipate change, and to design successful platforms and places. As a studio it aims to reach beyond the design of objects themselves to the social, economic and environmental systems behind them.
The Fleeting Bench is made from 71 individual triangles, each incrementally different from the last to create a shimmering, rippled surface.
The structure whisks along the ground in one line, sweeping the landscape as if leaving the trace of some fleeting movement.
The inside triangles are visible through a void inside, defined by but different from the outside form. This would be appreciated in a solid material through the gaps between the triangles but is most apparent in a transparent or translucent material.
We employed a few simple graphs to define a form is a way to make something complex from straightforward elements – a way to derive something that might otherwise not be conceived of. A graph, like a stroke drawn by a pencil, is a gesture. When the gesture is credible, it can be transferred to and expressed in other forms that we can respond to with our common-sense intuitive understanding of forces and potential movement.
