Orm bench

White Design and Olle Anderson

Conceived as a modular design, four individual Orm benches combine to create a perfect circle, or two can be joined to form a semi-circle. Several benches can be placed at obtuse angles to create wave-like shapes. The bench can be made in a range of materials and combined with backrests and armrests, making it one of the most versatile benches Nola produce.
