On display at WantedDesign Manhattan from May 19-23, 3form's Dark Chroma Mobius Interactive Bench is an innovative interplay of texture, color, and light.
The brain-child of Makingworks designer Louis Lim, Mobius is constructed of recycled resin thermo-formed around a wood core.
The result is a clever and circuitous facsimile of a bench-a pseudo-circular form that twists in upon itself like an infinity symbol or a snail's shell.
But the real show-stopper is the bank of integrated, interactive lights peppered within and about every inch of the internal surface. The lights respond to pressure and touch-illuminating the entire bench in a rhythmic if ineffable pulse.
The innovative form and intriguing interactivity make it a springboard for reaction and discussion-ideal for public venues and collaborative work spaces.
See 3form for further information on Mobius and their collaboration with Louis Lim. And check out Mobius at WantedDesign Manhattan from May 19-23.
