This bench was specifically designed as museum gallery seating but has applications as seating in most public areas or private residences. The design refers to early Asian and Pacific island architecural forms. The base is made from wenge with dyed rope and the top is bleached ash with ebony and pewter details.
This design was awarded the "Best in Show" at the Maine Wood 2014 juried competion held in the Messler Gallery, Center for Furniture Craftsmanship.
This bench form can be easily and very successfully built as a console or hallway table.
