A bench that appears to be sinking into the ground and unusable is paired with a tapered volume that restores a functional surface for sitting. The opposing elements of the black frame of the bench and the monolithic white volume resting just above it are joined in reciprocal balance. Rotated on two axes, the implied instability of the slipping forms conceals the absolute stability of Slip Bench.
