Daniel Rybakken’s water-draining Ypsilon bench

The angles also add comfort

The Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken has designed this beautiful Ypsilon bench for Vestre.

“Ypsilon’s angled, solid glulam beams rest on laser-cut, curved sheets of galvanized steel.”

“The angled wooden beams provide a comfortable sitting surface, while their sloping surfaces mean that water quickly runs off the bench.”

“They also open up the possibility of very long straight and circular models.”

“Ypsilon is available either with or without backrest and armrests, with table top and in 200 RAL colors for the steel.”

Finally, a shot of the original sketch and the prototype:
