CAMO Delta Benches and Stools by Karl Monies moving further into the investigation of honest and dishonest materials, sculptural benches enthrone the moss-look-alike underlay. While the patterns and colors simulate the codes of camouflage, its
camouflage function is somewhat inverted as the fabric — usually covering the inside filler has been removed, leaving the padding exposed. Immersed in rubber dip, the benches glow in the dark — which, upon first impression, seem to be anything but an exercise in concealment. However, their glowing state imposes a unique dimension of camouflage — leaving them to be perceived as luminescent sculptures rather than functional objects.
