One Stroke Bench

teamLab Architects, 2018

Like the stroke of a brush, this is a single, connected bench.
The intricately overlapping planes and continuous curved surfaces have freely-changing functions, such as a chair for sitting, a table for eating, a playground for children, and a lounger for resting. The three-dimensionally intersecting parts look like a solid block or a sculpture. The sequential bench wraps around the building and becomes a counter for the building, seamlessly connecting the building and the bench, creating a landscape with organic continuity.
