RB_Bronze

Brushed and Waxed Bronze, Rubber / H350 W240 L2000mm / 250kgs / Limited Edition of 8 pieces + 2 AP/ March 2018






Edited by ToolsGalerie, the RB02-Bronze bench is composed of two brushed plates leaning onto three bead blasted and lightly brushed tubes; held together with mirror polished cylinders and natural rubber bands.

This radical assemblage is the result of a continuous investigation into rational forms and archetypes. By using industrially produced elements and non-definitive connections, it questions the position of the designer as a maker, and the value usually attached to the trace of the hand. Here, as there is no patina nor welding, no stylizing nor drawing, all marks of the maker have vanished. What remains is the purity of the material, highlighted via different surface treatments, and a rigourous work of proportions.
