BenchArk's design concept stems from a blend of two contradicting characteristics; motion and stillness. On one hand, the design abstractly impersonates an organic tree log that can be found in nature. On the other, it’s a resemblance of structural remains of an ancient wooden ark. The identical twin legs branch out organically holding a straight wooden line with a real bronze and copper finish. BenchArk is 3.5 meter long bench designed by Yazan Hijazin founder of Anknownymous in Amman-Jordan.
Haiden, a versatile design for indoor spaces, is functioned to be used as bench seating and/or storage.An original form constructed symbiotically from one side to the other, where the negative of one side results as the positive of the other and vice versa, all while confined to one specific angle. Its intricate mathematical organization resulted in a clean, modern and elegant design, warmed with the use of organic wood material on a solid industrial form. Suitable as an indoor bench when laid out horizontally, it is also capable to stand vertically as a shelving component.
This contemporary seating ‘lemmalah’ was inspired by the very basic form of Arabic script; Kofi writing. The passion for the written script, the art of ‘khat’ constitutes a fundamental trait of Arabic culture that is so powerful, it elevates every living experience. The Kofi letters and script were used to configure this contemporary seating. Written in Kofi script the word “lemma Lah” (why not), flows in the space with its intimate proportions and sinuous curves. So we ask Why not? “Some men see things as they are and say why, I dream things that never were and say why not.” G.B.S.
