We contracted a European industrial-designer to help us with the design. With his help we were able to incorporate European design sensibilities into a West Coast / North American concept. Our biggest challenge though was not the design, but our ability to make it a reality through our current manufacturing capabilities. This bench stretched us in ways we never though were possible! Critical to the success of this project was innovative thinking, investment in tooling, collaboration, and sheer perseverance.
Integral in the design are subtle features that really make this bench quite unique. A generous seating surface provides comfort for all user groups while the low-profile ergonomically designed back rest is both attractive and tough to tag with graffiti. Sleek armrests, a centre armrest option, and hidden fasteners give the bench a sophisticated & clean appearance from every angle.
The most unique characteristic of the bench is the ability to powder coat the armrests, pedestal bases and seat section in different powder-coat colours!
