Talented designer and creative Fernando Mastrangelo brings awareness to melting glaciers and the natural changing of the Earth's surface with a series of chair sculptures that capture the continual movement of the various layers of the planet. The benches feature a mixture of color and texture to showcase this transition in the furniture pieces.

The Drift collection highlights the detailed bench sculpture by Mastrangelo made from sand, cement and dye to capture the melting ice mountains. At one end, the bench features a rectangular shape connecting to a miniature recreation of a glacier mound carved from sand and cement. The glacier portion blends into the bench and features a gradient color transition from blue to white to showcase the layers in the ice.
