Tibo is a combined bench and table system in 3 sizes for indoor and outdoor use. The objective was to find a way to provide the easiest and most natural interaction between people and in doing so demonstrate that intelligent design can beneficially influence behaviour. Tibo is engineered around an aluminium frame designed to maximise strength and rigidity but minimise the number of elements at ground level for visual clarity, ease of installation and levelling. The base structure utilises die cast and extruded aluminium components in a number of powder coated finishes.
