Design Michael Bihain and Cedric Callewaert, Belgium
"A step towards the 'No' Furniture"
Before being perceived as an element of furniture, this design tends to fascinate by its underlying complexity translated in a simple, strong form.
Laureate of the Parck Design competition, Ondine is the fruit of a close collaboration between designer Michael Bihain and Belgian architect Cedric Callewaert. Ondine's main concept is its capacity to subject its viewer, or user to multiple interpretations: it is both sculpture and bench.
Divided into 3 identical modules, Ondine can be repositioned continuously. It offers a longitudinal seating element as well as a circular one. Its organic curves and its modularity offer a wide range of seating possibilities permitting it to continually adapt to various settings, urban, cultural and rural.
