The Lips Bench by Hermann Kamte and Associates

Cameroonian Architect Hermann Kamte, recently shared with us images of his ‘Lips Bench’, a conceptual furniture design which is inspired by (slightly exaggerated) curves of the human lips, hence the name. 

The Lips Bench is furniture inspire by human body curves, especially from women. This object clearly paints the movements of every exposed flexible structure in nature. The design can be mounted and dismounted easily.

The first step to understand, Wood is one or maybe the most beautiful and sensitive material that can make people happy when seeing it. We always want to return to nature, take a break because our largest city sometimes seems as a tiny cage. The bench wants to recreate these lost emotions.

The second approach is to say; not only as a manufacture bench may sometimes design be evocative as an art, a powerful pledge for our lifestyle. Yes, we need manufactured objects because of their ergonomic and series production; but we also have to create some crazy and amazing product as Lips Bench. ‘It could be a present for valentine days, or other similar events.”

It offers visual aesthetic and flexible seating options for all types of locations (Indoor to your home and garden; Outdoor for public areas).

This is a modular and adaptive design. It can be produced in any size and for several scales. Children and Adults can benefit from its smoothness and its elegance. This bench can make a great addition and transformation on your interior space.
