Israeli designer, Itay Ohaly, created this series of seating called ‘Fracture’ by tearing and smashing benches of various materials into individual chairs.

The materials used by Olay to create the collection include acrylic, beech, plywood, concrete and cardboard.

The project was aimed at exploring how the nature of each material affected the appearance of the fracture in each piece.

The complete object was the starting point for each creation while the fracture is what brought each piece to its final unique form. Stats for Intentionally Smashed Seating Trending: Older & Mild
