Weavers Bench

Weavers Bench

The Weavers Bench came from a small scale model that I had made, exploring how the surface of the weaving could form a soft shape for the body. When I showed this model to Patrizia Moroso, she interpreted this as being one large seat, which we agreed could be very nice and dynamic.

When I went to Dakar we made the frame directly from the model and started weaving. This bench was made without drawings or computers, only with skilled hands.
