Bench, photogrammetry and woodcarving, design by Cecilia Margareta Tjärnberg, MFA thesis BIG DATA DESIGN - Strange but familiar, 2019

Bench


The low seating element is a part of a series of furniture belonging to the MFA thesis BIG DATA DESIGN - Strange but familiar. The form is originally based on a photogrammetry project made up of images taken of interiors at Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. I pulled many forms from this initial digital work. I call them my inside out interiors. The Elephant and Carpet 0.1 were also derived from here. The bench was developed as a low sturdy element to compliment the small series of furniture built for the degree show.


The low seated design urges small children to play. The tilting levels and uneven surface presents great tools for gripping on to and climbing up on. Two heights of seating are included. The translucent coloring fades between lavendel, raspberry, and peach.



The design was built, power carved and painted by Cecilia Margareta Tjärnberg. Sponsors: Sundsvalls Kommun.
