  • Catalogue Essay


    The present bench, exhibited in 2009 at Haunch of Venison, London, is the fifth of seven extrusions by Thomas Heatherwick from a single billet of aluminium. Forced through a large die, the aluminium was cut into seven unique, unrepeatable sections and hand-polished. Waste from ‘Billet 1’ was recycled for future extrusions. Heatherwick intends to produce 200 metres of unique extrusions from a total of fifteen billets.
