Abstract Bench Designs by Pablo Reinoso
These extraordinary pieces of sculptures are creations of Designer Pablo Reinoso. Reinoso’s quirky soliloquy on the basic garden bench has enabled us to dream far beyond the conventions of everyday furniture. Reinoso is consumed by his exploration of the relationship between the seemingly static bench and it’s environ; how the twisted tangles grow in search of an organic attachment to their location. Pablo Reinoso has practised sculpture since he was a teenager, and for a long time he worked mainly with wood, slate, marble, brass, and steel. He focused his search on articulation and metonymy as well as on space and time. In the 1990s Pablo Reinoso consolidated his position as a designer; he began designing furniture (Pocketable, 1998) and a great number of objects, and started a new path between commercial strategy and art within the LVMH group. He became artistic director of Parfumes Givenchy in 2000 and Parfumes Loewe in 2002, where he designed perfume bottles and cosmetic lines. Used to changing paths, the artist shows us that function and form are not evident. He combines his work as sculptor and designer, reinterpreting furniture and placing it in new paradigms.
