Thinking differently is what creatives do on the regular. Most of the time schools teach us to think and act based on society’s standards. But the brave ones who dare to think differently usually change our aspect. That exact concept furthermore applies to design. Design in general is huge, but for the moment lets narrow it down to industrial furniture design.
If given the opportunity, how would you create a bench? You first action might be cutting out a wooden rectangle and adding some legs to it. If you are thinking like an Average Joe, you are not inventive. Creativity has no limits and thinking outside the box will deliver success. Functionality over art might control the outcome of any design. However if you work hard at it you can create a state-of-the-art design that comforts others.
In today’s case most of the benches listed below took the artistic route. We have managed to find incredible bench designs that range from creative all the way to crazy! The following benches use materials like steel, wood, concrete, and even soil. I’m not going to lie, this article took me a while to put together. To be honest I’ve probably seen over 1000 different bench designs and have managed to manually track down the best ones. I hope you will enjoy this collection and share it with your peers!
