elodie stephan’s ‘cimes’ bench seeks to reconceptualize the the bench into a sculptural form dedicated to landscape viewing. the work features variable slopes which mimic the cortina d’ampezzo region found in the italian dolomites. wood and metal are placed in conversation with one another which highlights their dichotomy and reflects the tension between stone and wood in the alpine environment.
when juxtaposed with the mountainous terrain the wooden bench reveals how it mimics the tree line
the angular form of the metal construction take their form from the jagged edges of the dolomites
the pyramidal shape of the metal allows the user to orient themselves in any direction
