Bench between pillars

This is the bench that makes use of the space between pillars. It is established by placing independent cylinders without gaps between pillars. The cylinder is made by rounding thin plywood sheet, and one thread is stretched vertically in the center of it. When we sit on one of the cylinders it deforms to extend sideways and pushes the both side cylinders. The side cylinder to be pushed deforms to extend vertically, but the vertical thread stops the deformation. Deformation that the side cylinder can not suppress enugh is further transmitted to the next one, and finally the pillar receive it. It has the structure that is made up of two elements of “the place between the pillars” and “the relationship between adjoining two things”.
