The Crash bench was purposefully dented to make it look as though a meteor plummeted from the skies and smashed into it. The force of nature is a powerful one and London-based product designer Liliana Ovalle embraces it to create furniture that is both visually and emotionally striking.

In this case, the Crash bench went from having minimalist, clean lines to sporting the equivalent of a black eye on a beautiful face. This unexpected impact, however, adds not only character, but also narrative to the piece. People will feel almost compelled to explain the look of the Crash bench with an imaginative story. And who doesn't like a good story.
