Manifold Bench Public Seating by Dening He

Home > Winners > #71855


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Manifold Bench

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Public Seating

INSPIRATION:
I noticed that aesthetic seating with curved and streamlined designs attracted more attention and positive reactions. Emphasizing practicality, I chose a hollowed structure suitable for the rainy weather. In the biodiversity of the Pacific Northwest, forests and plants live in harmony, and in the depths of the forest, the decaying trees become nutrients back to the soil. I decided to make a bench that didn't require any artificial material, not even glue or nails, but only wood.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The bench is constructed with oak, a strong Pacific American Northwest wood that can withstand heavy use in a public space. The curved, flat pieces interlock to form a smooth and sleek modular design that can be quickly and efficiently fabricated. During the rainy season, the hollow design allows air to pass through the bench to take away the moisture, while the curved surface ensures that the rain cannot stay on the surface.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Fast and easy manufacture, Eco-friendly materials, Durable

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2018 in Portland Oregon USA and finished in August 2018. And currently exhibited in Portland downtown world trade center by Design Museum.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Parametric drawing on Autocad and import for modified in Fusion360 as the 3D digital model, industrial CNC machine cut from the 2cm thick wood panel, all materials are wood only, wood selection is high-density White Oak

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length: 173 cm / 68.4 inches width: 85 cm / 33.5 inches Height: 108 cm / 42.6 inches

TAGS:
Wood, Curve, Ergonomics, Durable, Eco-Friendly, Interlock, Public, Seat

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the exploration of materials, I even tried cement and acrylic materials, and finally found that wood is the most suitable choice. Thinking the climate of the Pacific Northwest, I analyzed the local forest environment to find the most durable oak wood. Tried many different shapes and found that the curve was the perfect shape. At the same time, the curve line is the most representative of modern urban elements.

CHALLENGE:
The two biggest challenges are how to find the most comfortable sitting angle and how to complete the project without glue and nails. Because I want to integrate ergonomics into the chair and keep the material simple so that it is easier to maintain later.
