Tandem Bench Design: Part II
“Fractured Movement” pattern by BPN Design Group.

Anova recently partnered with four design firms to collaborate with our own product team to create new perforation patterns for the Tandem Bench, which will debut Oct. 20 at the ASLA Annual meeting in Los Angeles. Each firm created a unique design that we are excited to showcase in person at our booth in L.A.

This article is the second in a four-part series that will highlight each individual pattern and its designers. Please stop by Booth # 813 at the ASLA Annual meeting to see the benches in person.

Below is an interview with BPN Design Group with details about the inspiration behind the “Fractured Movement” pattern designed by Chris Behringer, Tiffani Navratil and Nicole Peterson.


Q & A with BPN Design Group

How did you come up with the design?
There were a lot of elements that went into it, the movement in nature, looking at water, urban areas, shapes and textures. Its open to the imagination and how you portray movement.

What is one thing that inspired your design?
Geometric patterns.

What do you think the biggest challenge was during this process?
Getting everyone together, scheduling was quite a challenge, but once we sat down it didn’t take long. Also, accounting for void space and Structural integrity and how it impacted design.

What was the most fascinating thing you learned during this process?
It was very collaborative, and the team worked as a group but also individually, we came up with a lot of ideas, but when we brought them together to refine the design it was easy.
