For designing a small bench for public spaces, the designer had the image of a rounded rectangular shape at the beginning of the process. The design ultimately became the two forms between, as rectangular shape holds a very logical and geometric feeling adding the coziness of the round shape. Since a degree of tension and comfort in the air of public spaces is quite an important factor to imply when designing, the overall roundedness of the seat helped to define its presence. The name “Loaf” comes directly from loaves of bread as the friendliness of the product resonated with one of the freshly baked loaves.“Loaf” has a family of single, two-seater, three-seater which replicate the shape for its single-seater. They can be arranged in the space as orderly or as randomly as people like. Having small handles on the sides suggests its casual character.
