Concept

The MARCH wall bench is a wooden bench that has to lean on a wall to be able to function. This new typology originates from a certain misuse of a ladder: people using one of its steps as a seat. The perception of the MARCH wall bench as a kind of wrong wooden ladder enriches the object by giving it a multi-context; it becomes an extension of the wall, it creates a domesticated area around and a fictive memory, based on the unconscious recognition of the nostalgic and iconic image of the wooden ladder.
