Programs Used: SolidWorks and KeyShot
The Kin Bench was designed with the everyday user in mind. The furniture piece is to be used as a sitting ornament next to the shoe rack near the front door, to aid people when putting on their shoes. The design was created with the perspective that it would be an adaptable piece that would also serve as a sculptural element in the average home. Each bar and every line in the silhouette of the piece makes the furniture piece sculptural and aesthetically pleasing, and at the same time giving it structural support and longevity. It is a piece that would blend into everyone’s home, yet also serve as an impactful detail that would certainly catch visitor’s eye.
