yet another urban bench,
based on self-exploration on curved fluid concrete forms inspired by the works of
M.C. Escher on one-sided surfaces firstly discovered by A.F. Möbius, was the starting point to introduce Marching ans Relaxing Ants.
The concept idea behind this project was to totally change the common perception of “urban bench”, using one basic element as a starting point for more complex set-ups, in combination of two or four units. Furthermore, another basic aspect of the design process was to keep the existing infra-structures of the city untouched. So, “just drop & forget” installation method was introduced.
this was the “in-between” project in a series of designs that started with Nessie and finished (?) with Eighternity.
