The Spaghetti Bench takes it’s inspiration from the universal park bench “everyone has sat on a bench like this, some have been kissed on one, others have waited for their kid on one, they are common to everybody”.
Reinoso plugs into the consciousness, by twisting the familiar and conjuring up a playful, fantastical alter reality, empowering the wooden slats to resurrect back into swirling, growing live tendrils.
The Spaghetti Bench has an inescapable surrealist influence, with a poetic, elegant repose.
The benches are not only conceptual works but also feats of handcrafted dexterity. Each wooden slat is hand-carved to create the sinuous curve, the human intervention of the manufacture once again triumphs over the straight lines of the traditional park bench.

Very interesting piece. On a funny side note, have you thought of submitting it to venganza.org (the church of the flying spaghetti monster)?
