Bakkegårdskolen & Tjornegårdskolen, 2009, Gentofte, Denmark

Function: seating bench
Shape: cross
Material: fiberglass
Measurements: 1500x1500x500 mm

The design of the bench allows it to be used as a resting bench for one pupil as much as a gathering spot for many. The installation happens by concreting the cross or bolting it directly to the surface. When not permanently installed, it is a flexible object and can also be used to demarcate areas. The design solution was developed in close collaboration with local contractors and in relation to site-specific needs and elements. But after observing the successful use of the bench, it was further used in another school project. As the cross has this very strong, formal language, it was moreover the perfect object to include in a sketch design for the red cross.
