This bench reflects the progress of crafting in a contemporary context, where computational design and fabrication tools have become state of the art. Using wood planks reclaimed during the redecking of VivoCity’s Sky Park, tiny threads of carbon fibre tie the seemingly massive blocks together to give them their stability to create a durable, robust piece of furniture.
