DYLAN MCKINNON RGB BENCH IN BRAZIL GREEN
Modernism challenges its disciples to create simple and functional products that are neither simplistic nor aesthetically unappealing.
Following in the tradition of minimalist masters such as Naoto Fukasawa and John Pawson, Dylan McKinnon's creations dismiss ornamentation and novelty in favor of fine craftsmanship and meticulous lines.
HIs collection of RGB benches was inspired by the slapdash rural outdoor benches made by anyone with some wood, a saw and a hammer.
As Gio Ponti did with his Superleggera chair, McKinnon took an unassuming furniture archetype and realized it with charm and precision.
This lightness in form is achieved by a trapezoid-like cross-section that thins to 1/4" at its outer edge.
In keeping with the original bench, gussets are employed to strengthen and stabilize a minimally constructed form.
Construction aside, the RGB benches have tremendous sculptural presence. From certain angles they appear to be a sharp stripe of pure color.
