Part sculpture and part practical object, the Tube Bench by Peter Donders would be likely to have just as many folks standing next to it in awe as it would people sitting on it. This dynamic piece of furniture expresses the mesmerizing concept of how men and their machines can manipulate even the stiffest materials.

The unique parametric shape of the public seating system was devised through complex 3D computer models and translated perfectly into its final form through the casting of aluminum. The familiar rigidity of the metal has been completely broken down and transformed into a fascinatingly fluid entity.

To give the Tube Bench by Peter Donders even more of a futuristic look, it’s painted with a lustrous metallic coating usually used to finish cars.
