Haiden Bench

Haiden, a versatile design for indoor spaces, is functioned to be used as bench seating and/or storage.An original form constructed symbiotically from one side to the other, where the negative of one side results as the positive of the other and vice versa, all while confined to one specific angle. Its intricate mathematical organization resulted in a clean, modern and elegant design, warmed with the use of organic wood material on a solid industrial form. Suitable as an indoor bench when laid out horizontally, it is also capable to stand vertically as a shelving component.

Academy of Art University

The Academy of Art University was established in San Francisco in 1929 by Richard S. Stephens.  It is one of the largest art and design schools in the United States.  "Haiden" was originally a school project made in a furniture construction class. The criteria for the project was to create a functional piece of furniture, with a uniquely inspired background.  My background in Interior Architecture and Design, combined with my passion for practical-original art is what inspired the creation of "Haiden."  "Haiden" is a balance of geometric shapes that holds an aesthetic look, yet a functional piece of furniture.
