Designed in minimal style, the bench making a Far Eastern impression calls to mind the silhouette of traditional Japanese gates (torii). When designing, I took inspiration from dry gardens of Shunmyo Masuno. In bustling cities, these little gardens, sanctuaries, roof terraces, and spas offer a heaven of peace, and a place for spiritual purification. I would like this bench to represent a lifestyle: I have time to take delight in the rising sun, and the scenery in front of me.
