Tititkaka Bench by Naoto Fukasawa

October 14, 2009

Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa has created the Titikaka bench for B&B Italia.

From B&B Italia:

The new Titikaka bench, in teak lathes with an aluminium frame, contradicts the rigid shape of traditional outdoor benches. Perhaps the waves of the bolivian lake inspired this ingenious piece where the surface of the seat seems to almost ripple with wonderful effect of wind over water. in fact, around the aluminium frame the lathes, which continue  to the floor on both sides of the bench, have a wavy progression, creating curves that are sculptural yet truly practical for the ergonomics of the seat.
