Web Submissions: Kielnhofer Light Bench

As a variation on the "funny ball bench" (pictured below), we present to you photos from Manfred kielnhofer’s latest project, the "Light Bench"… at least that’s what we’re calling it.


Ok, we fully realize that this joint is just a bunch of plywood with some, er, medicine balls underneath it.  We even wonder what happens to the buttocks of a person who sits on one of the rounded protruding cut-out parts.

The thing that’s different about this new project?  The bench is now light-bright, which, in a public setting, is sure to disturb the sweet dreams of any bum and/or ninja who may be spending the night peacefully sleeping au naturel and/or vomiting off the side. Pictures you say?

In all its splendor. That’s basically all you get… I’m pretty sure I proved last week that if you give me some garbage press release, you will be lampooned.  The latest installment:

The funny bench consists of three light balls and two boards.
