Porosity Bench

The Porosity Bench is the work of Steven Holl Architects but you’ve only got to have a look at the image to know it was designed by an architect. Porosity bench features the sculptural form that is often seen in modern architecture. It is constructed of solid bamboo planes with digitally cut interlocking edges. It is a seat that can be seen through and it plays with light to casts beautiful patterned shadows. The bench was commissioned by Johnson Trading Gallery, produced in a limited edition of 10. The architect’s website shows some of the sketches that provide an interesting insight into the thinking and process behind the design.
