NORTH BENCH / / / SOUTH BENCH; RF14

Two benches design for Game City at Roskilde Festival 2014.

The benches functions as both social gathering space and spectator stand. The curved layout creates a variation of spaces, some are focused on the games, while other parts opens up to the site, and invite people to enter the space.

The benches switches between two and three level of seating, to create a variation on the possible ways of utilizing them. As well as the dept of the seat is greater than usual, to help with the general circulation and make it possible to gather in small groups.

The benches are constructed from nine different frames and cladded in wood, which makes it possible to re-erect the benches in new configurtions year after year.
