Furniture for Fogo Island
2013, Shorefast Foundation

Last but not least we came up furniture for the island. It arrised as an idea when working on the outdoor furniture.
Everywhere on the island you see simple wood contructions or wooden fences with crosses and slats. That resulted in the idea of these fence benches. They look familiar as fences but on second glympse there is a twist and they appear to be benches. Spreaded over the island they serve passers and hikers for short breaks. The furniture for the island is not installed yet.
The fencebenches are close to the the practical, down to earth and playfull approach noticed a lot in the Fogo-ers.
