I came across a bench that used materials in an innovative and somewhat unexpected way. The Spirit Song Curved Bench by Barbara and Robert Tiffany turns wood sideways to create a really comfortable bench. They have a whole collection that follows the idea that “The world does not need another chair. Clean air, pure water, nourishing food, yes…but not another chair. So when we design one, it must be something special.” that can be seen at new leaf gallery. And yes, it is very nice to sit in.
