The tube is bent into a chair profile which is repeated along the length of the bench.

"We designed a long chair and donated it to celebrate the completion of Centurial Memorial Building of Nippon Institute Of Technology," says Nagasaka.

"This chair is made of one seamless steel pipe which draws the section shape of chair. Other steel pipes also draw various ways to sit."

    As long as you chain up your bike somewhere near the center, you will have plenty of time to come out and catch the crook winding his way toward an end.

    I’d rather see more of the Centurial Memorial building than this throwaway piece.

  • Hem Roid

    My ass hurts already

    Nice idea but it looks uncomfortable, seems more a conceptual work, nice for a sculpture park.

  • jek

    an unnecessarily large number of photos for something so simple I feel . . .

  • leandro locsin

    the greatest weakness of an avant-gardist is the way an object ” feels ” . yes schemata, it looks good, what then?

    it would be better if you clad the portion of the pipe that hits the human skin with —->>>>

    “12mm thk. teak wood in silver wood stain finish by sadolin, mega epoxy-bonded, smooth-sanded”

    im so frustrated with this, yes michael youre correct, it really looks like a bike bollard. haaayyy saan ka pa?

    this would look good as a tool for jackass spoof! get a crotch pad!

    hmm.. people with flat hard bottoms would find this heavenly… now how rare are those to find?

  • rubber

    not ecological, a waste of steel

  • touffu

    I didn’t think i had such a small ass that u could seat only on two pipes…

  • zuy

    conceptual work is often near art, near sculpture,near performance it’s always uncomfortable… because it’s more to be seen on media or in fair or in Christie’s , Arcurial aso than to be really used…

    The young mexican designer Joel Escalona used the same unllimited tube concept and also “an unknown dutch designer from Einhoven “(i joke) for Droog in last Milan fair

    terrible how on this site everyone knows better! every time I read comments they are negative!
    Can you do better?

  • El Greco

    Ah, there’s nothing like a #27 double extra strong pipe to sit on.

  • Anon

    This is what gives design a bad name.

  • Marcus Chiang

    INteresting but .e..r.r.. .. No wonders price of materials goes up…

    Oh, man… that’s one of the things I love about the impending winter around here. really great idea i really like this one.

    Problem is that the desription is wrong and they didn't finish the installaation, thus misleading everyone. It's obviouly a radiator.
