Carbon-wood hybrid bench: SUTD and CCS furniture won a SG Mark Award
Singapore, 16 August 2019: The "Tiny Thread | Massive block" wood-carbon bench, designed by Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and manufactured by CCS has recently been awarded with a SG Mark.
SUTD designed this bench with the intent to apply modern computational manufacturing methods to more traditional craftmanship. The wood planks, reclaimed from VivoCity’s Sky Park refurbishment, were robotically machined by CCS to obtain a complex pattern of grooves for fiber threads laying. The carbon fibers provide extra reinforcement and make this bench a strong and durable piece of furniture.
The SG Mark awards companies or individuals for good and exemplary design practices. It was initiated by the Design Business Chamber Singapore to foster design innovation in Singapore and set the benchmark for design quality locally and abroad.
