Workshop | Bench
brushed stainless steel, antique copper, textile | 190 x 78 x 73 cm | 2011
Kiki and Joost designed a sofa, which has a surplus value when different textiles are combined. This makes it very easy to play randomly with different colours, structures and patterns. The sofa consists of a light metal frame holding a simple and light base with different cushions. It has an open and modern structure, which makes it suitable for both an office as a home setting. It can be seen as a kind of chaise longue, but also as three-seater sofa.
Kiki and Joost also designed textiles made in different materials including biological yarns: Connect, Stitch, Block, Score and Brush.
The Workshop Bench Collection has won a 2012 GOOD DESIGN award, organized by the The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
