Amazing Urban Bench Design by BMW Designworks

A part of the Metro40 collection by BMW Group DesignworksUSA, this urban bench really stands out.

We have to admit, we are amazed by this flawless design, by the perfection of the curves and the smooth transaction from wood to metal, as if they were one whole. A very nice design in the tradition of BMW cars. As Antonio Carusone puts it on his blog AisleOne, “the design is streamlined and simple and makes use of some fine materials.

I personally love the sweeping curves and how the legs are one continues piece that form a part of the back and seat”. And then a comment continues: “Lovely piece of elegant design. Love how the metallic support structure looks like an elastic band. Which is a beautiful contradiction which adds to its tactility.

And the wood is curved off too so the eye flows over the contours. This is more than a ubiquitous bench. It is a piece of sculpture”.
