the cloud bench

A bench is, by definition, a piece of furniture on which several people may sit at the same time.
This design denies that standard definition and proposes a creative approach to the project converting the use of the bench in a singular experience. An horizontal plane floating in the air thanks to a few balloons that support a cloud. A light element that makes users feel that they are sitting in the air.
When designing our bench, we asked ourselves the following question: could we create an exception?
Could we create an horizontal plane that doesn’t offer any reference of proportion? What reactions will this cause to the observers?
