Originally a sculptor but essentially a contemporary artist, Pablo Reinoso has practiced modern art in different ways since an early age. He created his first art sculpture at thirteen and his first bench-sculpture at fifteen, but at six he had already made chairs and bookcases and had invented carts that tore down the slopes of France Square in Buenos Aires.
For the wood furniture series entitled «Spaghetti Bench,» Pablo Reinoso used public benches, which are anonymously designed and travel across cultures with an out-of-time, old-fashioned quality, as a starting point for his reflections. Started in 2006, these new modern art creations have multiplied and found homes in very diverse places. In line with his work on Thonet’s creative furniture, the artist explores once again the seat as an object.

Yet this time it is no longer a modern art object but matter that frees itself from its function and pursues its fate of wood, tree, plant. Reinoso stages benches that, after having accomplished their task as art furniture, revert into growing, climbing branches. This freedom is expressed in a movement that embraces architecture, wandering through places.
