Under the name of SARN, a suite of furniture made up of variable benches has been created for the exhibition rooms. The chosen materials could hardly be more different: felt, an ancient natural material, and aluminium, a precise, technical, present-day material. The felt mats are “sewn” onto the laser-cut aluminium sheets with a metal cord. The use of a minimum of materials and the precise geometry of the seats and backrests allows the furniture to fit naturally into rooms and exhibitions of many different designs. Following the example of workshop and laboratory furniture, the benches also take the idea of maximum flexibility and practicality a stage further. Slot-in backrests make the benches into convertible seating. The historic benches along the Talvera promenade in Bolzano were the model for the backrests, which are adjustable to suit the direction of seating and viewing.
