Vellum Furniture_Project 1: BLOOM

As our first assignment we had to design a piece of furniture that embodies the word: PLAY. In its natural state the piece appears as a more sculptural object with a seat for one person. As the first person sits down it begins to “blossom” as new seats become available. It is an experiment of social interaction forcing people to sit directly next to each other in order to have complete use of the bench. Starting from the center, seating grows outwards. When the seats become unoccupied again, the bench begins to curl back up to its original position.
