The 8 Bench is constructed out of surfaces. If one loosely folds a piece of paper a tear shape results in side view. Likewise, two surfaces pushed together can form a pocket. This system is repeated vertically and horizontally and intersected and trimmed until one has a shape that is part saddle part folly of a French, ‘60s church. The construction is water-cut out of stainless steel, folded into a facetted approximation of a teardrop shape and riveted together in a hidden manner. The surface has a leather texture to distract from scratches. This structure also reminds of a real saddle or a protective cladding one knows from the public realm. The low, longish bench also resembles an architectonical artifact of a portal.
