Tehran – IRAN

Winter 2015


The main idea was to use a module with simple geometry and joints that every person could create complicated forms and multiple functions by arranging this module together. These simple joints and various arrangements of the modules maximize the flexibility of the design. The suggested functions for these arrangements are as follow: sitting back to back, sitting face to face with or without the table, sunshade or …

Thus, multiplication of these modules inspired by bionic forms of nature can be used as urban sculpture or advertising stands which play an important role in beautification of the city environment and its revenue.

The building process of this urban bench includes different parts such as metalworking, carpentry, painting metal and wood, installing woods on the metal and etc. in all these parts we have tried to keep the purity of materials in order to express their nature. Metal working started with cutting of metal sheets and creating desired pattern with the aid of computer cutting. Then, wooden parts which are heated and resistant to climate are cut and painted in several steps. Wooden parts are installed on wooden modules and prepared modules are carried to the site and are installed by the simple help of few people.
