The line between sculpture and design is very thin in Ron Arad’s work.
His creations, whether functional or purely aesthetic in nature, are characterized by motion, by soft lines that give all his works a highly dynamic orientation despite their primitive, simple forms.
Ron Arad’s creative process sets out by experimenting with the expressive potential of materials, transcending mere functionality to create objects which are highly plastic and expressive and can be reworked to become products for large-scale distribution.
That’s what happened also with Folly, the bench/sculpture in rotational-moulded polyethylene, available in a unique colour (rust brown) and suitable both for outdoor and indoor use. It is in fact a sculptural object with its own functionality: a bench allowing 8/10 people to sit down on it.
Rotational-mouldede polyethylene. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
