The Botanist Pixel Burst Bench by Orange 22 is a harmonious marriage of modern art and functionality. It combines the precision of minimal honest design with the beauty and feminine touch of nature. The lines are simple and clean producing a dazzling piece to be enjoyed for years to come. Precisely cut from a single sheet of aluminum, each unit is faced with high impact powder coat or with an epoxy coated Tree Frog veneer allowing it to be used equally indoors or outdoors.
Eight icons of design have joined forces with Orange22 Design Lab to launch the firm's Blank Canvas Project. All of the super high-profile designers have created new editions of Orange22's indoor-outdoor, eco-friendly Botanist furniture. Botanist matches each designer's royalty to a foundation or charity of their choice. The Pixel Burst designed by the Yves Behar, features an explosion of creativity.
What was your inspiration?
Burst of creativity, of self-expression and ideas is what drives us as creatives, so, how does this idea get expressed in a simple visual? We took a literal pattern of an explosion, and reduced it to square pixels...the offsets and size variations creating an abstract, yet recognizable shape of a burst. The resulting drawing is reminiscent of a bright light-spot, a sun...squint your eyes, and the abstract shapes become something bright and optimistic.
Why is it important for you to give back?
I have invested a lot of creative energy and fuseproject studio time in the idea that design can make a difference: beyond the value we create for enterprises and for the users, it is the VALUES we create that have long term impact. This approach has resulted in a few civic projects that we have invested in such as the One Laptop Per Child (100$ laptop) with Nicholas Negroponte, and the New York City Condom and dispensers we have done for the department of Health of NY. Design has a democratizing power, as designers we need to use that power.
