Emeco Navy Bench

Shawn Weiland

Shawn Weiland created a bench version of Emeco’s classic Navy Chair. The 1940’s chair has been stretched forming an aluminum bench with clean, reflective lines. Weiland said the design was inspired “by the way we perceive our environment through the objects around us. Using the concept of anamorphosis, most notably exemplified in The Ambassadors, a painting by Hans Holbein, the design is unaltered when viewed from a single vantage point, but as you move from that point, the design begins to be distorted, taking on a new form of a bench. The polished surface of the bench accentuates the distortion of the design by the reflection that is created on the surface.” Images courtesy of Objeckt Creative.
