Strip Ease

“Strip Ease” is a multifunctional modular street furniture element: it can be used as a bench and a bike rack if it’s placed horizontally, or it can easily become a vase or a rubbish bin by inserting a proper internal framework and placing it vertically. The name “Strip Ease” is also closely dealing with the production process. In fact the object is created simply by folding a recycled steel strip in the shape of a spiral in order to minimize the waste of material.
