Pretzel Bench

To show the unique character of rattan material, with a unique approach on exploring structure with the usage of small rattan core, which shaped from the bavarian meal inspiration that not only could expose the bendy character of the material itself, but also, from the pretzel module, the intersection point also act as constructional support.
