In the galleries of the artist community of CaoChangDi Beijing, Tsunami Urban Furniture is forged by the force of a powerful wave – the formation of this public furniture object “Tsunami” flows between sharp corners to reshape the gallery space.
Tsunami is creating a spatial transformation from the hard elements of the context to the fluid formation of the object itself where natures forces create a constant feedback between environment and artificial entities. It also provides the opportunity for people to sit and relax and meet, changing the users’ spatial experience through a topological transformation.
