Internationally acclaimed artist Mathias Bengttson won the 2005 St James Street Furniture Award. He developed a new process and material – spun carbon fibre. It was partly developed by NASA to produce lightweight, strong, cylindrical pressure vehicles. The 12m long sculptural seat, commissioned by Futurecity, snakes through the heart of the One SE8 development.
Working with diverse industrial materials and processes, Bengtsson pushes forward the sculptural, technical, and philosophical possibilities of three-dimensional design.
