The minimalist Place Bench by Omayra Maymo is not only a piece of furniture, but also a sculptural work of art that blurs the lines between design and art.
Despite its simple silhouette, the Place Bench is a bold statement. Its form is based on pure geometries and conveys a sense of calm and simplicity. At the same time, its unbalanced composition makes it different from every perspective, offering the viewer an ever-changing visual experience.
As a designer living in Madrid and Copenhagen, Omayra Maymo draws inspiration from the architecture and culture of both cities. Her approach, however, is focused not only on the physical object but on the intangible relationship that is created between the object and its user. Maymo sees herself as a storyteller and views the object as a form of expression to create emotion and move people.
This philosophy is reflected in the Place Bench, which provides space for interaction and communication while creating an artistic atmosphere. In her designs, Maymo also pursues speculative projects that result in unique, experimental pieces. She explores the natural potential of materials and their processing, seeking to merge seemingly opposing frameworks. This approach brings fresh perspectives to the design industry and shows that the limits of furniture design are far from being reached.
