The concept of the FLY Bench is to embody timeless design; simple, pure and universal design breaking the mold of traditional furniture. It is a solid oak plank lifted effortlessly in mid-air. Two triangles connect at the apex, carefully constructed to allow for ergonomic comfort with the two sides of the bench gently sloping inward. It is best described as a wing that floats in mid-air. The bench is beautifully constructed and spans a variety of uses, both in the office and home. Its’ sophistication and simple design stands out in a room full of pieces. The clean iconic aesthetic and solid form elevates this bench to a level of timelessness.
