Spaghetti Bench by Pablo Reinoso

For the series entitled Spaghetti Bench, Pablo Reinoso used public benches, which are anonymously designed and travel across cultures with an out-of-time, old-fashioned quality, as a starting point for his reflections.

Starting in 2006, these new creations have multiplied and found homes in very diverse places.

In line with his work on Thonet’s chairs, the artist explores once again the seat as an object.

Yet this time it is no longer the object but matter that frees itself from its function and pursues its fate of wood, tree, or plant.

Reinoso stages benches that, after having accomplished their task as furniture, revert into growing, climbing branches.

This freedom is expressed in a movement that embraces architecture and wandering through places.
