limited edition 12 + 3 designer proofs
This latest bench design by Peter Donders is nothing less than spectacular. The familiar rigidity of metal has been completely broken down and transformed into a fascinatingly fluid and graceful entity. Like a sculpture it lures us in to examine it from all angles and each view presents a new and extraordinary aspect of the design.
To create the bench a simple tube has been stretched and optimized much like an elasticized fabric via interactive simulation to create an optimal form. The form is then "baked" to lock in the parametric shape, at which point no further manipulation is possible. This shape becomes the base for the 3d model which in turn is used to create the final sand mold for casting. The aluminum bench is then finished and painted with the precision and quality of the finest sports car.
Peter Donders is one of the few designers today who has the capability to turn his vision into reality, the best examples of course being C Bench and Batoidea which are 100% true to the computer models.
