Air House Bench

cherry / upholstry
18” x 36” x 18”

The concept for this piece was inspired by a residence in Japan titled the Air House. Featuring floor to ceiling windows creating the walls, the house is almost completely surrounded by water and the natural environment. Following the formal aesthetics of the space, the upholstered piece floats in a thin, airy frame of cherry wood. The shape of the upholstery is representative of airflow, and the seam-lines reflect and emphasize this aspect of the bench.
