A Glaciers and Rocks Inspired Bench by Fernando Mastrangelo

A bench design by Fernando Mastrangelo that draws inspiration from glaciers and rocks.

Fernando Mastrangelo is a Brooklyn based artist and designer with diverse talents. He loves to work with materials such as salt, coffee, sand, glass or cement in order to create sculptural objects that cross the border between art and design. Pure geometric shapes go along with rugged, nature inspired formations.

This bench is a great example of Fernando Mastrangelo’s creative work. It combines the two disciplines of sculptural art and industrial design. The bench is part of Fernando Mastrangelo’s “Drift” collection. The design draws inspired from glaciers or rocky formations, where geometric and functional shapes seem to merge with natural earth formations in a very aesthetic manner. The Brooklyn based artist and designer used hand-dyed sand and cement to create this bench. The gradient represents different layers of a glacier or rock. Fernando Mastrangelo’s beautiful bench design of his “Drift” collection will be exhibited by James Gallery at Art Genève in Switzerland from January 28 to January 31, 2016.
