Vivian Beer is an industrial designer from Manchester, New Hampshire. Her firm focuses on furniture and her recent work is called The Infrastructure Series. It’s a series that focuses the placement of the structure of grids with the artistic forms of conceptual sculptures.
Her influence for the series in strongly related to architecture. Although the designs are irregular silhouettes, the structure and design work together to created a flowing aspect that will appeal to a wide array of people.
Each component of the work has a physiological place in its design though a precise use and the relationship that it sets up between people using the design. This collection is a study of public architecture though intimate system of benches.
The use of sensual curves in the bench suggests that there is an intimate relationship between users and the bench. The closeness between person and furniture is not something people often dwell on.
