Rox Bench

In the winter the unit collapses down into a storage unit where you can keep garden tools, children’s toys, etc. In the summer it opens out into a 3 seater bench and has two accompanying tables. Another feature is the built in solar lights, creating a cool night time effect.

334 Newspaper Bench

The “334” bench is made of 3 parallel bars of metal and 334 newspapers folded and stacked next to each other. The challenge of that series is to recycle a product, but also to design a furniture without using any screw, glue, soldering, etc.

Union Bench

This is a bench without a back or front, that let’s everyone sit and enjoy from every internal mood and external angle. It’s a non- fuss design with maximum practical benefit and desirable, minimalist aesthetic.

Splinter Bench

The Splinter bench consists of two sculptural side chairs, each with a smooth and a jagged side—as if they have been broken apart, or “splintered” from each other. When joined at their serrated ends, they fit together like puzzle pieces to form a sleek contemporary-looking bench. They can also be arranged to join along their smooth sides, creating a lounger with rough-hewn edges for an Arts and Crafts feel.

    While the rolling bench is accredited to Korean designers, this MUST have initially been discussed by an Englishman, or at least they’re selling like crazy in the UK.

  19. Mischa

    Is anyone else bothered by the use of the word ‘conversate’ instead of ‘converse’?

  20. Romeo Lanz -cebu.philippines

    Great design concept. It is also perfect around the trees. A lot of so called ‘designers’ install benches around the tree trunks located on parks here making the concrete benches grow with the trees over the years..

  21. Justine

    These are amazing!

  22. Edgar Galeos Apa

  23. Gelareh

    Wow! I really have to go and design one. Love it so much.

    The seesaw bench is a nice idea, but it looks a bit unstable. I like the Rolling Bench and Union Bench, simple and functional. The Splinter Bench is also creative. :D
