Concept: The project started with the idea to keep the experience of sitting on a long bench, similar as those that lined the National Stadium. And the logic and beauty of bolting down the long planks became obvious. The planks are often subjected to harsh outdoor weathers, and when they disintegrate, the bolted planks become easy to be replaced. Decades later, the weather beaten planks with their old bolt holes are now designed for a new context. We were able to re‐interpret it to make it ergonomically better, and by using a curved steel frame with the bolt and nut system, it remains a coherent continuation of its past, and adds a strong flexibility to the production of the bench in any lengths.
