About Yves Béhar
Yves Béhar is the founder of fuseproject, a San Francisco based design agency contributing to areas that include technology, furniture, sports, lifestyle and fashion. Béhar brings a humanistic approach to his work with the goal of creating projects that are deeply in-tune with the needs of a sustainable future, connected with human emotions and which enable self-expression. In Landscape Forms’s Multiplicity, Behar has designed a collection that truly pioneers the integration of mass production and custom materials and configurations. The result is a system that is internationally savvy, locally resonant, and perfectly suited for the global market.
The MultipliCITY backless bench shares the same form language as the backed bench and like it is solid and grounded, interactive and user-focused. The cast aluminum bench with wood seat is offered in straight and mitered versions that enable virtually limitless configurations. The backless bench is wider than the backed version, allowing people to sit back-to-back as well as forward to increase social activity in a space. The bench is a perfect companion to the MultipliCITY table under which it efficiently slides. As in the backed bench, long seat boards are supported on the underside by steel straps to ensure stability and enable flat shipping.
