Location : Iwatemachi Iwate-prefecture
Type : Furniture
Completion : 7/2022
Like many urban spaces around Japan, Iwatemach had a lack of street furnitures. To address the issue, we designed a bench that not only activates urban communication but also adds color to the surrounding city scape. Using local red pine, we created a lattice with scantlings that were rotated 45 degrees, giving the bench a sharp look as well as allowing rain water to flow off effectively. We have also added a P-shaped stainless steel parts to the bench, which can be used in a variety of ways; bicycle rack, signage, rack to hang bags, etc.
