EQUILIBRIUM is a project by Maria Dal Canto and Lena Holzer in which three objects are discovered outdoors in gardens and parks – benches, loungers and picnic tables. This collection was created to connect people and start a conversation. You’ll soon see why.
The collection includes a chaise longue, bench, and table with simple iron frames that tend to retreat into the background with the red rope in the spotlight. When not in use, the rope remains loose with gentle curves waiting to hug the sitter.
When a person sits alone, he or she either falls through or is too uncomfortable to sit because of too much rope. When two people are seated, the rope is split and both parties balance it for comfort. If someone prefers to sit alone, they can always untie the knot at one end to tighten the rope.
