B&B Italia Outdoor Titikaka
By Naoto Fukasawa
The waters of Lake Titicaca dictate the shape (and name) of the bench by Fukasawa. This stretch of water lies between Bolivia and Perù, a lake 204 km long and 65 km wide that occupies around 8562 km². This very beautiful place caught the designer’s attention, and he tried to capture the movement of the waves to “move” the bench into a new, wavy shape.
Titikaka revolutionises the concept of a bench. Fukasawa redesigned a traditionally “immobile” piece and set it in a new realm of poetry and sculpture.
