Looper Bench

The Looper Bench is a continuous wooden loop constructed of solid maple. It was designed at Michael Graves Architecture and Design for David Edward. While at Michael Graves, I assisted in the development of this furniture series by sketching, 3D modeling, and rendering this bench with direction from MGA&D Principal Donald Strum.

The bench comes in loops of two, five, and seven to seat one, two, or three people.
Different sizes nest together. Looper's section view is a keystone shape, a quiet reminder of stability and strength.

The Looper Bench was debued by David Edward at Neocon 2018. I was fortunate to be able to attend the event in Chicago and enjoy the final design in person.
