THE SURF BENCH : The idea of furniture is generally thought about as a piece that is produced as a self sufficient object that can be placed in potentially any setting. The surfbench rethinks furniture as a piece that is naturally incomplete. A piece that requires an input from its context to be whole.
We undertook to fully build the surfbench with our own means. We used a CNC grid to obtain the basic shape that we filled in with foam that we sculpted. We wrapped the entire form with a plant based mat that we hardened thanks to bio resins sourced from Canada.
The result is a piece that used sustainable materials. The process proves that any idea can be brought to reality in today’s world without the necessity to reach out to dedicated manufacturing companies.
