The bench proposed is an exploration of tree rings and how they could be manipulated three-dimensionally to create curvy, sensuous volumes. The bench is made of wood, specifically wood able to resist the changing weather.
A relationship between the parts and the whole, the bench will be comprised of 178 wood rings of approx. 1” In thickness and diameters from 30” to 12” decreasing in intervals of 1/2”. The rings will then be nailed (or screwed) together, generating volume along the way.
