Bench is a project initiated by Rob Hebing. Nick Koning and Rob have teamed up recently, realizing interactive installations. Sometimes as commissioned jobs, but they also have self-initiated projects running.
An exemplary self-initiated project is ‘Bench’. Having created the physical Bench as a three dimensional model, work on this project has currently reached a second phase in development. Nick and Rob have done some groundbreaking work in developing custom Arduino processors, sensors, and a remote control (by telephone). All this will be fitted in the Bench (version 2), making this bench a less submissive ride then you’re used to.
Some more of their recent work and research will be featured soon at their website www.koninghebing.nl
