Six Fold by Elliot Bastianon is a bench seat that uses six individual sheets of EchoPanel® to function as an underframe, turning a non-structural material into a supportive element. It’s an extension of the ideas presented in Orientation—the first piece to explore the method of ‘V’ bent panels—and echoes a ‘strength in numbers’ approach to design solutions. A timber frame on the underside removes any chance of deflection and ensures the top remains flat when used.
The solid oak top has been blackened and polished, muting some aspects of the timber’s characteristics while simultaneously highlighting others.
