Gwenael Nicolas‘ invention, the Mist Bench, is an interesting creation of a seat and an interactive object. The fibers in the bench, a coarse blend of optical fibers, respond to people as they get closer to the bench. The entire bench has been hand-knotted – for me, that’s one of the coolest things about it.
The bench is part of an exhibit called Fiber Senseware, which will be unveiled at the Milan Design Week (which is coming up soon!) and expects to be a hit.
