Root Bench is circle-shaped public furniture installation. The bench is 30 meters in diameter set in a grassy sculpted field and looks as if its dynamic "roots" are spreading throughout the park. People can rest on the bench, either sitting or leaning on its different height. The main concept is an organic shape that sprawls out from the center and creates spatial connectivity. Root Bench is fused into the grass and blurs the boundary between an artificial installation and the natural environment. It also offers two different chair heights for both children and adults as well as a table.
