Kevin Hviid is an architect based out of Copenhagen whose bright outdoor furniture is made for more than just comfort. 'Bob the Bench' is the name of his chair design, which features a circular shape that extends down past its seat, making it look like a 2D sphere when looked at from afar.
With this continuous shape, Bob the Bench was created to reference a sense of collectivism. As circles often symbolize wholeness and perfection, Kevin Hviid's bright outdoor furniture incorporates this positivism in both its vibrant colors and its inspiration. From the side view, the chair looks like any other, with the brass and steel construction adding to its durable and sleek design. With this, Kevin Hviid's Bob the Bench makes use of a playful and dependable structure that complements the ambiance of any lawn or patio.
