Concept

A piece of found driftwood initiated the design for the Drift bench. The naturally formed fluid lines of that found object provided inspiration for Amanda Levete’s exercises in complex curves, angles and subtracted spaces. The Drift bench is an extremely sculptural design whose function, as a seating object, is clear although the primary concern for Levete has been translating her organic, highly sensual architectural language into a condensed form. Drift bench is constructed from glass reinforced polyester and is available in either satin-matt or high-gloss paint finishes.
