No2 bench

Olle Anderson

Andersson’s first bench was launched more than thirty years ago, yet the design has hardly dated at all. This bench was made with the same timelessness in mind, crafted with an understated elegance that will seem contemporary for years to come. Solid oak slats join the seat and backrest in a single, swooping gesture, carefully balanced atop a beam that anchors them to the ground.
