Timber Aurora is a nine metre long sculptural bench seat. This urban design prototype expresses a technological and functional aesthetic, encouraging audience engagement. The installation redefines the urban furniture found at the edges of the architectural landscape into a form of public space activation.
The natural beauty of timber is manipulated, unleashing its hidden performance. Inspired by the shape of the ocean wave, the experimental bench is designed to display dynamic and fluid movements. The prototype becomes more than just seating as it is equipped with smart devices and lights that play out a sequence reminiscent of an aurora. Inside the bench seat, integrated interactive lighting creates a new type of playful atmosphere that visitors can enjoy.
