Picnic Podium

A shock red tablecloth draped over an invisible podium formed CAN’s response to the RIBA's PewPerches competition. The bench, only 13mm thick, seemingly hovers above the ground. The bench was installed in London Pleasure Gardens for the beginning of the London Festival of Architecture 2012 and is now a permanent addition.
