A Minimal Modular Bench

Words

Designed by London-based studio Shiro, ‘Uluru’ is a collection of modular seating elements that form a continuous, sculptural micro-landscape. Made of ultra high performance concrete, the series is minimal yet fun – in public spaces benches can become an improvised playground, allowing children to explore different seating postures. UHPC, ‘Uluru’ is minimal and simple yet Shiro’s designer Andrea Morgante says: “I was interested in generating a serene form that could gently relate to the human body whilst seating in different postures and positions. Public benches have somehow the noble responsibility to connect people to the surrounding environment and in the same time to offer a comfortable rest.”
