Design duo Tejo Remy and René Veenhuizen credit their experimentation with spatial models and maquettes such as the present lot with creating these rolling, dune-like benches without the use of a computer. Veenhuizen describes their model-making process as keeping a “freedom of form” allowing them to build organic, free-flowing designs that are also structurally sound. The realized Reef benches were installed on the roof top of the Picasso Lyceum secondary school in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands.
