You Are Here is a formal exploration of physical place met with the application of mass customization to furniture design. Any geographic footprint abstracted into its essential positive and negative space can be produced to create a one-of-a-kind piece. You Are Here allows you to select any urban mapping (ie. an individuals location or landmark) to create a sophisticated piece of modern furniture that is imbued with personal meaning.
You Are Here is individually laser cut from sheet steel that is bent twice and finished with a powder coat. As a simple, and easily manufactured piece, You Are Here can be utilized as indoor/ outdoor bench seating or as an occasional table, and comes in two standard sizes. For interior use, You are Here also has the option of a soft-top seat inlaid into the frame.
You Are Here reinforces our place in the built environment, adding both sculptural and practical element to the urban landscape. As public seating, You Are Here can be fitted with a “support” bar that indicates a specific spot on the street, thus allowing the bench to be used as a multifunctional land-marking tool with way-finding applications.
You Are Here is available in two sizes:
Bench/Coffee table L54” x D18” x H18”
Stool/End table L20” x D18” x H18”
