Como homenaje en su día, traemos aquí sus ‘bancos de Möbius‘…

Outside the circle, the back of the seat twists to become the seat itself, which twists to become the bottom of the seat…You sit and shift from outside to inside, and vice versa…

The Möbius bench is adapted here to the shape of the mall. The bench is forked: one side hugs the building, while the other splits into ‘arms’ — one reaches out toward pedestrians as they walk in from the parking lot…

Take a strip, a Mobius strip, and make it a seat: the back of the seat twists to become the seat that twists to become the bottom of the seat… Now split the strip, the plane, into sections, into rings, into tubes: the tubes wind and coil like snakes… Sit on the strips, they’re soft like snakes, they’re safe unlike snakes.

¡Preciosos asientos… aunque no parecen demasiado cómodos!

Bonus: ¿Os parecía poco? Mirad este proyecto de ‘arquitectura de Klein‘ para una zona de juegos…
