As a tribute to the bench designed by Robert Moses for the 1939 New York World’s Fair, which ultimately became the most widely used in the city, our editors commissioned the highly renowned New York landscape architecture firm James Corner Field Operations, the creators of the High Line in New York, to interpret and bring this icon from their city to the present day, while optimising its functionality and ergonomics.
The characteristic curved profile of the armrests endows the Perisphere bench with a stylistic yet robust presence. Designed to be placed in various forms of alignment by combining benches and banquettes, it may also be used individually. Inspired by the name of the most ambitious building from that 1939 World’s Fair, Perisphere is a modular system that can adjust to the private need of a domestic garden or to continuous use along boulevards and in parks, meaning many may be placed in alignment with or without a backrest.
Banquette 1,50 m: 31 kg.
