3form and Louis Lim Team Up for Mobius

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.
