Most pieces of furniture have a distant relationship with the other objects throughout the room, relying on color, material and form to establish aesthetic connections. Interestingly, the S2 System by Raky Martinez makes the bold and unconventional attempt to intertwine each element so that they act as intriguing objects on their own and compelling parts of larger furnishings when arranged together.

Each abstract bench is made from rotation moulding plastic, allowing it to embody sleek surfaces and fascinating shapes. Geometric modular manufacturing has produced contemporary linking components that broaden and narrow, and rise and fall. The rigid snaking forms can overlap with each other to establish elevated seating or unusual side tables. The S2 System by Raky Martinez takes a diverse range of colors and patterns but remains cohesive in its open arrangements. Stats for Wacky Interwoven Seating Trending: Older & Chilly
