Playing around with graphic compositions of both horizontal and vertical stripes, we thought the result was similar to woven fabrics where multiple lines intersect. Creating a connection between these two references, we designed a set up of benches that interlock to each other perpendicularly in order to achieve plaid/checked patterns.
The series includes five types of benches : white painted plywood benches which were mostly common in public nurseries throughout our childhood years, an urban stripy pine bench, a classroom bench, a picnic bench and a rustic wooden bench.
The benches were painted in order to achieve the finished plaid pattern and machined so they could be connected into each other in a cross lap joinery. The legs of each bench were designed according to the visual identity of each one of them, but not as to be part of the overall composition. Thus the legs create a random and surprising compositions.
