BLASST is a public bench, composed of stretchy gold spandex enveloping a squishy-foamy interior. The bench provides a curious contrast and striking seduction; it is a bottom’s blank canvas.

As part of the “MAKE: Bench” Competition brief, the designers noted that they could not fully predict how a public bench will be used, but they could predict how it may be constructed. There are unlimited sizes, shapes and preferences of the streetscape. BLASST is made for the streetscape, by the streetscape.
BLASST is a bench continually formed by the cross-collaboration of citizen booties and foam – creating a frothy gold nugget for the public to rest upon.
