Frank backed bench

David Taylor

Frank revisits the classical park benches of previous centuries and updates them for twenty-first century urban centres. The bench is a simplified version of the decorated frames typical of Continental Europe that merges the armrests and the supports in a single expression. Traditional wooden slats form the seat and backrest, creating a silhouette that easily blends into a historic setting.
