3041 Tokyo Daytripper, 2001

Droog design / Tokyo

Day-tripper is a seven meter long city-bench for Tokyo, Japan. Day-tripper is based on a study of the different postures people assume on the street during a day, while learning, sitting, lounging, or squatting. Seven of these postures have been fixed and have shaped the wave-like form of this work. More formal pieces of “furniture” have been integrated in this wave – like a dining table, a coffee table or chairs. Working initially from an appreciation of European scale and culture, in this case the designers have chosen to fabricate the works using a skin of fiberglass, printed with a white flower decoration over pink colored polyester.
