Check out these really awesome benches from Vivian Beer Studio Works. They are so unique, I would love to own one of these. She uses a mix of functional furniture that can stand alone as an art piece. They are simply beautiful shapes and colours.
Vivian tiptoes through contemporary design, craft and sculptural aesthetics, sampling from each one. She deftly counterbalances a strong knowledge of contemporary furniture design with the history of industry and architecture to create furniture that intends to transform our expectations of and relationships to the domestic landscape.
