Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay designed a collection of furniture collected out of joining iconic urban benches into a checked surface. Colorful benches are inspired from the joy their brightness brings us. This specific project that caught your attention from the fascinating photo is a collection of benches captured under the name ‘Plaid Bench” Collection. The design studio that worked on this project, “Raw-Edges Design Studio” explains: “Stripes arrangement is a common element in iconic benches. Many of the very common archetype benches happen to be shaped in this way. Stripes are also the fundamental element in textile check/plaid pattern where they arranged together in a vertical and horizontal fashion.” These urban benches were captured in a collection designed for Dilmos Milano. Comprising of a set-up of wooden benches linking to shape a plaid pattern, the project aims at combining shapes, colors, different textures and materials into a fun, useful furniture collection.
