Solution

Barrister Seating represents a flexible modular solution towards seating, gardening, storage, and beyond. Devised of four main component types (bucket, cushion, stanchion, and glass enclosure), Barrister is easily customized to appropriate any number of spatial conditions.
The main component (the bucket) comes in 6 modular sizes. Made of a simple aluminum space frame surrounded by high density urethane foam, the bucket can operate as the shell for a seat, the plinth for a table, the container for plants, the closed storage for gear, or the open storage for items you wish to display. Mounting points embedded into the space frame allow you to securely fasten a bucket to any number of surfaces, or even to other buckets. These same mounting points enable you to quickly attach other components such as horizontal and vertical cushions, table tops, and even glass enclosures.
The buckets are stack-able and resilient. Their modular nature allows you to easily reconfigure an entire arrangement, to stack the units for storage (when not in use), and to leave them out in the elements, regardless of climate and function. The units can be used in totally outdoor or indoor conditions, or as a mediator that blurs the edge between exterior and interior. The aluminum space frame is strong enough to take massive loads, while the urethane foam is waterproof and sturdy enough to take the abuse of any weather condition. Weep holes built into the mounting points facilitate the movement of air and excess water.
