Ryuji Nakamura: Bench Between Pillars

The days of sitting on a regular bench at the mall are over. The Bench Between Pillars designed by the Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura just made sitting in the mall much more fun. What is unique about this seating design is thatit mimics hammocks.

Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura designed minimalistic vinyl hammocks at a department store in Tokyo. The simplistic repetition of the sheets activates the space while maintaining its integrity and function.The hammocks are suspended from the ceiling of an empty space. The seats take forms as if the ceiling has collapsed down and appears like leftovers from furniture-making and construction. You can sit firmly upon them though they might seemingly not look supportive - this chair appears sitting, standing, re-appears and invents various experiences and scenes.
