The Royal College of Art, London
The Sculptural Bench was the culminating project for Lee’s master’s degree at the Royal College of Art and focal point to his MA show. The bench is divided into four segments; each of which can accommodate two to three people. The intention was to create personal spaces on a communal bench, allowing individual privacy, whilst not completely disconnecting the user from their neighbours and the surrounding environment. The bench takes reference from the construction of confessional boxes in the way a semi permeable screen divides it occupants.
The Bench is fabricated from 10mm Corten steel sheet, which has been fabricated without the need for welding and mechanical fixings. This allows for ease of installation and possible storage. It was purchased during the show for the Royal College of Arts collection and now sits within the centre of Kensington Gore campus adjacent to the fernery.
