The Amada Bench

American designer Mattias Pliessnig built this curvy custom bench out of thin sheets of oak:

pliessnig recently completed 'amada', a design for a private client who wanted a large bench flowing through his living space. the piece was designed to direct the sitter to face multiple directions. the seating unit is made entirely of air-dried responsibly harvested white oak that has been steam bent to create the curvaceous form of the bench.

It looks like works better as a sculpture that it would work as furniture. I've seen more comfortable looking church pews. Maybe furniture doesn't have to be comfortable if it is arty enough.
