Contemporary RB02 Bench in Steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminium

About

The RB02 bench is composed of two brushed aluminium plates leaning onto three lightly brushed steel tubes; held under tension with polished stainless steel cylinders and black rubber bands. This radical assemblage is the result of a continuous investigation into rational forms and archetypes. By using industrially produced elements and non-definitive connections, it questions the position of the designer as a maker, and the value usually attached to the trace of the hand. Here, as there is no patina nor welding, no stylizing nor drawing, all marks of the maker have vanished. What remains is the purity of the various materials, highlighted via different surface treatments, and a rigourous work of proportions. RB02 is designed and entirely made by Johan Viladrich, it consists of a limited edition of 8 pieces + 2 artist proof and 1 prototype. Each piece is signed and numbered and professionally packed. (For The Netherlands, please keep in mind that 21% VAT need to be added to the original price).

Additional Options

Possibility to adapt length, height and width to requirements. The bench is also available in Bronze, and other materials can be discussed.

About The Maker

Johan Viladrich

Johan Viladrich

View Profile
A pure design with essential forms is what characterises the aesthetic of Johan Viladrich. In his work he aims to reveal the inherent beauty of materials through refined surface treatments and subtle combinations. He uses the mass of metals such as bronze, steel or copper to create radical structures in which all superfluous elements have disappeared. Like a goldsmith, Johan attaches as much importance to the final appearance of his pieces as to the mechanisms making them exist. Bolts, straps and joints are magnified and turned into intrinsic parts of a whole. The designs are transparent and each piece is a search for balance, only reachable through a meticulous work of proportions.
