The Honeycomb is a sculptural furniture piece, which was designed for, and currently installed in the MCAD sculpture garden. I created it in order to help alleviate some problems I've experienced in the community.
The first issue is that students and faculty have very little space to do work outside. Due to the cold weather, when it is nice out the common areas of campus are filled with people, music, games, etc. This creates a lot of distractions for people who are trying to get their work done.
The second issue is that the sculpture garden isn't visited very often. Although students and staff are aware of its presence, it is usually only observed from a far, which doesn't do the works full justice.
In order to bring people to the sculpture garden while also providing a more distraction free space to do work, I constructed The Honeycomb. It's shape creates a comfortable position for occupants to work on their laptops, as well as face each other if doing partnered or group work. The wooden slats provide shade from the sun, as well as some noise reduction from 26th street, while still allowing them to see the environment around them.
