New work from Christian Vivanco â€œFrom A Lost Cityâ€ features a multifunctional work surface and storage unit inspired by the informal architecture of shanty towns.
The workbench has an informal structure and is made from mixed materials, including oriented-strand board (OSB), bamboo and polycarbonate.
Implications - Coming up with new designs for items that have been around for ages can be a difficult task. By exploring the different structures, new aesthetics and concepts can be applied to other areas. For example, taking the function of a particular type of building and scaling it down can provide an intriguing design for furniture. Re-inventing themes into new items can prove to be as successful as creating all new concepts.
