Origami backed bench

Thorbjörn Andersson

The striking shape of this eye-catching bench was inspired by origami, the Japanese art of making objects out of folded paper. Like origami, this bench has been designed with crisp ‘folds’ that conceal the legs, form the seat and shape the backrest. The result is a backed bench that appears to balance weightlessly on the bottom edge, but is anchored to the ground by the metal supports that form its shape.
