The beginning of the bench series created when i pulled a wooden kitchen countertop out of a dumpster. This bench is inspired by cumulus clouds which are prevalent structures in the New Orleans skyline. The cumulus shaped rebar curves that compose the bench back were found scattered amongst the rubble of a long-gone New Orleans landmark called Pontchartrain Park.
All of these pieces are one-of-a-kind, yet similar forms and materials can be re-created upon request.
Materials: heart pine kitchen countertop, salvaged re-bar and angle iron
Dimensions: 65” x 53” x 24”
