Martinez was influenced by the spiral movement that can be observed from the various elements such as the growth of plants. The spiral twisting shape of the bench symbolizes the constant movement and regeneration. To Martinez and her team the works they produce are more than just benches or interior objects, they are sculptures where one can be part of it feeling the constant transformation of the material.
