25 Bench by Omer Arbel for Bocci
The 25 Bench by Omer Arbel for Vancouver based Bocci forgoes the conventional upholstery principle where foam is encased in fabric for comfort by eliminating the foam altogether and compensating the lack of it by adding enough of extra fabric for the seat and back. The pleated fabric of the masculine and minimalistic bench folds and conforms to a human body, creating unique patterns and thus a unique look each time and over time.
Bocci claims the sleek style of the 25 bench makes it ideal for a wide variety of spaces, be it a public property or a private residence, and it’s easy to see why – the design can adjust to a wide range of interiors without necessarily dictating the theme. Quiet enough not to steal the spotlight, it’s still an undoubtedly curious design that can inspire an intimate conversation.
