frank gehry 'tuyomyo bench' for emeco

renowned architect frank gehry has collaborated once again with manufacturer emeco to create ‘tuyomyo’ (spanish for ‘yours and mine’), a one of a kind large scale bench. using 80% recycled aluminium components and aircraft manufacturing technology the bench only weighs 55.3kgs. frank gehry’s mandate was simple ‘the form has to be free and light.it must be structural and at the same time poetic. and a little dangerous’.

 

‘tuyomyo’ will be presented at the emeco exhibit during milan design week.
