The Serengeti Bench Seat by David Tate

Home > Winners > #53884


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Serengeti

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bench Seat

INSPIRATION:
Designed for the high use active audience the Serengeti provides practicality and convenience of having table area within a seat, allowing typical and common uses of the target audience. The legs of a giraffe walking were the inspiration behind the alternating legs.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Serengeti incorporates a bench seat with table area on both sides. It's accentuated length provides a greater sense of space while minimalistic seat detailing breaks up the overall length while separating seating spaces. Clean, simple and defined alternating steel legs are self supporting and provide maximum strength and stability through their design. Contrasts of colours and textures through the use of wood and leather softens the aesthetics.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Serengeti can come either ready to assemble or ready assembled. It is designed for high traffic public spaces with the temporary active user in mind. It can be accessed from both sides and can seat three people at one time.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Original designing and prototyping began in early 2016 and final completion was December 2016, Perth, Western Australia.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Made in Australia, the Serengeti's main structure is hand-made from environmentally sourced local Jarrah wood and upholstered with black leather hide. The seat rests on an internal steel frame and powder coated steel legs can be easily removed for efficient packaging and transportation. Original wooden leg prototypes were deemed appropriate for domestic use only.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 600mm Length 2270mm Height 450mm

TAGS:
Furniture, Bench, Seat, Upholstered, Commercial

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
To firstly understand and observe directly the modern workers' active lifestyle and daily activities, then can an application to enhance efficiency and effectiveness be determined. Where does a person waiting at a seat put their laptop, briefcase or portfolio? Either on a table, the floor or on the seat next to them. Occasional or coffee tables are largely inefficient taking up space, accumulating paper pollution and positioned impracticality for safety and use. The floor is ergonomically inefficient and the seat next eliminates the purpose of the seat to other users. By providing a table area immediately adjacent to the seat and with no obstruction or need for its own structure, is not only effective and efficient but complements the users experience, needs and space.

CHALLENGE:
The greatest challenge is now the Serengeti's greatest strength. Wooden prototypes of varying leg designs were deemed unsatisfactory in regards to providing design aesthetics with robust and endless strength. The current leg design supports itself and its strength comes from the forces working against each other.
