MIF Bench

This was a competition project entry for the 2015 Manchester International Festival. The challenge was to design a piece of public seating for use at the Festival. The inspiration for the design was the honeybee/honeycomb, an official symbol of Manchester, which was realised in the profile developed from the hexagon. Creating a single long piece of furniture, rather than multiple smaller pieces, offered a monumental center piece within an area where people would be encouraged to interact with each other rather than divide into discrete groups.
