- bench minimal wood sustainable
Simple, easy to produce and minimalistic bench.
The bench is made of six crosses that are sitting plane and six equal legs at the two ends of the crosses. The space between the crosses is equal to their thickness. All the pieces are held together by five screws, which pass through all six crosses and legs.
The bench can accommodate five persons. It measures: 200cm in length, 45cm in height and 45cm in depth.
While designing I considered that :
- the bench must be environmentally sustainable, so I used only materials that can be recycled(local wood and stainless steel)
- It must be easy to produce and to assemble ( it had to be made of a few different parts)
-the parts of the bench have to be easily replaced, in case they brake, so that the bench could be in use for a much longer period of time.
- Does your design support sustainable production, embodying circular or regenerative design practices?
The bench is made from local wood, it's made only from two pieces that are easily replaced with new ones if they ever broke. And the wood is easily recycled.
- Does your design use principles of distribution and open source?
Made from just two pieces is easily produced even in a small and not so ecuppied workshop,
- Does your design promote awareness of responsible design and consumption?
It's promote responsible consumption in a way that is made to last, to be easy repaired by anyone and in the end of it's life to be easy recycled.
