Geometric DNA Bench

View all 5 Photos

Designed in collaboration between Deborah Mansur and Leonardo Rossano of True Design, the DNA Bench is a minimalist piece of furniture with a spiral shape. Each section is crafted from a single piece of plywood, adding to the sense of flow between pieces and the contradicting segmentation of the whole. Whether place in a home or a public venue, the geometric design is a sure conversation starter. However, smart alecks may point out that the so-called DNA Bench has one helix instead of the expected two.
