Linx: An Interlinking Bench System
Linx’s name is a play on this seating system’s cat-like maneuverability and its distinctive steel-and-nylon linking mechanism that attaches each six-sided piece to its neighbor. The length of the seat i s potentially limitless, and the easily rotated link makes it easy to reconfigure the bench to many different layouts. Sixteen pieces can complete a full circle.
Both Linx and its designer, Charlie Fowler, were discovered when Fowler received the Allermuir Future of Design Award for Furniture Manufacture at the 2003 New Designers exhibition in London. The Linx will be available for purchase in September 2004.
