TRIO BENCH Multifunctional Bench by Yazan Hijazin

Home > Winners > #43357


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
TRIO BENCH

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Bench

INSPIRATION:
TRIO was designed as a solution to a client's limited space problem; the client wanted a complementary seating option to sit at least 4 people, yet she was in need to relax after a long and tiring day on a chez-lounge-like seat, So for the limited space available, I had to think of a structure that has both functions, and ended up offering her a piece that seats 5 people, with 2 manual reclining body positions. Trio Bench is linked to an emotional memory of solving puzzles when we were kids, and the simple interaction between the user and the piece to find more ways of comfort and new ways of using the same piece creates an emotional attachment to it.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
TRIO Bench is a multi-functional upholstered bench that seats 4 people. However, in few seconds, the user/client can manually interact with the piece, and turn this bench into a recliner/chez lounge with 2 new positions. Trio Bench is made of walnut wood, upholstered Fabric, and leather. It comes with a foldable headrest option. We have ensured space utilisation as well.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
There is a user interaction with the piece. The user manually replaces two triangularly-shapped upholstered pieces- part of the whole structure- whereby one is hidden in its place under the bench, and the other is replaced as a continuation to original structure, and the headset is unrolled, as a result of these three steps; a chez lounge/recliner that offers 2 new body postures is born. The piece is able to put a surprise look at every user's face.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This piece took around 2.5 months of work in Amman-Jordan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
From a hand-sketch, to CAD-drawing, to a mock-up, then once all approved this bench was hand-made, using walnut wood, and upholstered with 2 types of Fabrics. It took us 2 months to produce the final piece.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
2.6 x 0.80 x0.43 meter. Upholstered base has 2 triangular pieces that can be repositioned to offer a fully recliner seating with 2 body postures. The upholstered structure contains wooden nerves-hidden structure- to maintain the fabric straight upholstered lines.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The starting point and the main theme was the very common Hexagon shape. Its a very common element in Islamic Geometry and the whole new collection was inspired by the hexagon shape. Any hexagon can be drawn through two triangles. Therefore, the bench has two triangles that are manually re-adjusted in position to offer multi-functionality.

CHALLENGE:
Using local craftsmen in Amman, we faced a big dilemma in the upholstery part of the piece. We had to keep the lines/edges very straight, and it took us-the whole team- lots of time to try to use layers of dunlop layers along with a full wooden structure-wooden nerves- to balance comfort with aesthetics.
