Dutch designer Floris Wubben crafts beautifully strange pieces that combine natural and high-tech materials. It’s that blend of rough, textured surfaces with new technologies that makes his designs stand out from the crowd. One of our favorite examples is the No. 3 Bench, made from an accordion-folded sheet of white polypropylene that follows the contours of a piece of driftwood.

The No. 3 Bench combines zoomorphic lines and a fascinating combination of materials. The seat is made from an accordion-folded sheet of white polypropylene (a plastic material) that is draped over a piece of driftwood and attached with white lacquered metal bars.

The No. 3 Bench is a beautiful hybrid of natural and man-made textures. “Although [the plastic and wood] are different materials, they need each other to conquer the whole design,” commented Wubben.

Each of Floris Wubben´s designs are handmade at his workshop in Vught, in southern Netherlands, and can be purchased from Outdoorz Gallery. See more of his quirky creations here.
