By adopting the form of the archetype of a bench, “bench.” can be constructed out of a single piece of plywood with no material wasted. The resulting bench would be simple yet sturdy. Construction time would minimal as cuts would all be straight lines. The pieces would then be assembled by the mean of applying adhesive upon each layer.

The purpose of “bench.” is not only its primary function as a platform to sit on, but also a reminder that we should try our best to reduce wastage of material as much as possible.
