Gothic elements in modern furniture

Gothic is a term that denotes the art of the late Middle Ages, between the 12th and 16th century. It originates from the Italian word gotico, and it came in use in the 16th century. It described the raw, barbaric culture and art, and so it had pejorative meaning. Today it marks one of the most important and the most beautiful art styles of Europe. One of the characteristics of Gothic architecture is a pointed arch.

/I have always liked this gothic style and it inspired me to create a wrought iron bench./

Gothic architecture is mostly preserved in cathedrals, churches, castles and town halls. I have always liked this style and it inspired me to create a bench. From Gothic architecture I borrowed the typical pointed arch. Two of these arches are the base of the bench. Attached between them is the seat made from solid oak. I moved the arches slightly away from the edge. In doing so I interfered, so to speak, with the wooden plank because the inner arch had to pierce the wooden seat. This is the main feature of the bench. Gothic windows of a European cathedral have a new function: they are the constituent part of the bench and can continue their journey through centuries.
