Klara backed bench

Christina Jonsson Lillienau

Klara is an award-winning bench with an eye-catching design. The armrests, legs and side supports are fixed in cast iron, yet their sweeping curves suggest fluid form. As if drawn boldly in black ink, their sleek shapes seem to spell out letters of the alphabet, or bring strokes of a paint brush to life. Although the bench is strikingly contemporary, the simplicity of its design and the beauty of its contours make it suited to period settings also.
