Approaching the Twist Bench on the sidewalk, I might be more inclined to assume that it's a bike rack. Perhaps that would be a practical second use for the product as well -- but no matter. The designer explains that the outdoor seating system is more comfortable than it might appear.

Jang WooSeok manipulated the material in such a way that pairs of mirroring grooves create cozy little pockets in which people can sit down. Support is provided for one's rear end, as well as for the middle of one's back. The overlaps between the openings function as ledges for perching your possessions, or for accommodating a casual leaning position.

One of the greatest features of the Twist Bench is the efficiency of its manufacturing. Just three pieces are necessary to assemble it, and they can be welded together offsite.
