AN AVERAGE BENCH
We live in smaller spaces, with bigger aspirations. The chief aim of the average bench, is to design with room for improvisation, whilst still taking into consideration architectural standards in hight and dimension. If we have an inherent tendency to interact with our built environment in an improvisational manner, then surely opportunities to improvise should be designed into our built environment? The average bench lives in the not-so-average contemporary domestic space; where the expectations of our spaces, are bigger than the spaces themselves. The average bench is assembled without the need of any tools.
The average bench is flexible.
The average bench is forgiving.
