The Flower is a bench with a petal-shaped seat design and slender centre reminiscent of a clover or a sylised blossom. It comfortably accommodates at least three people who can either engage in communication or face away from one another and relax in solitude. Initially conceived in 2001, Flower was first employed during the 7th Istanbul Biennial. Since then, the bench has been repeatedly produced in small numbers for individual projects, making it clear to SANAA and Vitra that Flower was ready to be developed for larger scale production.
