Sakura bench

Thorbjörn Andersson

This elegant bench is crafted from lateral slats of varying widths. The thickest forms a border along the outside edges. The legs are grouped in a pair that distributes the bench’s weight laterally rather than anchoring it to either side. Whether chosen for a park, an urban sidewalk or indoor space, the Japanese sensibilities that inspired Sakura lend an element of the exotic East to any setting.
