Bench
ベンチ

This is a bench for viewing paintings exhibited at the “Undressing Paintings” exhibition held in 2011. It has a seat made of 40mm-thick Japanese ash board and inclined legs made of 40mm x 40mm square timber of Japanese ash. The design using a bare material and four legs that appear to tilt in different ways depending on the viewing angle was inspired by the image of a voluptuous nude woman. Nuki ( penetrating tie beams) connecting legs are hidden in the thick seat board.

ぬぐ絵画展(2011年)のための観賞用長椅子。40mmのタモの厚板の座面と40mm角の傾いた脚をもつ。むき出しの素材と見る角度によってさまざまな傾きに見える四肢は、肉感のある横たわる裸婦をイメージしてデザインした。脚の貫は座面の板厚のなかに隠されている。
