Pop Rivet Bench is a combination between two traditional handicrafts. We used the visual expression from the antique Swedish Bentwood boxes for keeping butter (Sw; Svepask). They were traditionally made of layers of wood bent around an oval shaped bottom held in place with birchwood lacing. The wood is translated into swept aluminum sheets and instead of laces we used big Pop Rivets. The construction and the production method is very pragmatically chosen and makes the project very easy to produce and use.
