The Plum Bench is the third in a collection of designs that explores the creation of structural forms with Carbon Fiber. The Plum Bench is a concept that organically combines structure, form, and material into one. Inspired by aerobic and martial dance movements the gesture of the bench takes a very elastic posture and an elegant profile.
Advances in composites and manufacturing technologies are giving us a new freedom to create not from strict geometries, but from usability needs and sculptural approach. Using state-of-the-art 21st-century material and technologies the bench would be made of tree-axial carbon fiber. This composite is capable of providing an incredible strength of five times greater than steel on an equal weight basis.
