New York City, NY
As a response to the NYCxDESIGN competition brief, the following street furniture encourages casual encounters and provides a space to reconnect and congregate with fellow members of the community. Entirely finished with Ceaserstone quartz, the lounger seems monolithic, heavy and static at first glance, but upon further inspection, it appears to be hollow and flexible. As the seating is able to pivot around its central axis, the loungers can be configured and oriented ad libitum. This contradictory appearance doesn’t only create a sense of mystery and curiosity, but will also catch New Yorkers’ attention.
