Materials and Methods:

This client requested a piece of art that could be used efficiently and installed in their town parks. These benches were built with a custom structural aluminum frame, computer numerical control (CNC) programmed to bend 3.1-mm (0.1-in.) aluminum sheets to form the shape of an open book. The team used 3M vinyl on the panels and Matthews anti-graffiti clear coat. When finalizing this project, they highlighted key works and landmarks in the wording, so the book actually tells the story of the community where it belongs. Structurally, the result is very strong, and it presents itself as a unique and functional product.
