ALOO Bench

(+-) Project text

ALOO aims to show, that radical lightweight construction doesn't have to rely on high-tech materials. The bench in constructed out of regular products, in the sense of ready-made: hose clamps, zip-ties, drainage pipes, wood, lashing straps and, most notably, drink cans. 12 cans, glued together, make up one airtight strand each. When Inflated through a tire valve, they can bear significant weight, but also bringing the weight of the bench down to just 3 kg. Thus the new material „aluminum bamboo“ is created.
