- Frank Gehry BenchFrank Gehry’s love of architecture began at the age of 8 on the floor of his grandmother’s house while he was playing with different blocks of wood. He never lost his wondrous sense of play, which informs all his work and is instantly recognizable in his Gehry Outdoor Collection (2004). Best of Show winner at Neocon 2004, it’s a result of a collaboration with Heller, who asked him simply to “create furniture as unique and beautiful as his buildings.” This weatherproof collection is characterized by sculptural monolithic forms made of rotational-molded polyethylene in striking colors inspired by Gehry’s flower sculpture for French artist Sophie Calle. Each hollow single-piece form features consistent wall thickness and stress-free outer corners for supreme resistance to breakage. All are suitable for residential and commercial use indoors and out. Made in U.S.A.
- Niels Hvass Cutter BenchIn the 1990s, Danish designer Niels Hvass became a leader in the Nordic design scene by creating furniture that earned him awards and recognitions from Bo Bedre, Georg Jensen and The Design Foundation. He designed his teak Cutter Collection to challenge overly nostalgic wooden outdoor furnishings, bringing elegance and simplicity to outdoor spaces, as well as interior ones. Originally intended for gardens and patios, the Cutter Bench (2008) is also fitting for kitchens and bathrooms. This piece features specially engineered mortise-and-tenon joints and metal rail inlays for durability. Like all teak products, it will develop a rich, silvery patina over time, or it can be treated with teak oil to maintain its original luster. Made in Thailand. Add the optional Cutter Box underneath for storage.
- Matthew Hilton Eos BenchWhen we asked Matthew Hilton to identify the common elements found in his work, he replied, “Functional, stackable, it has to store easily and be a good price.” Fast-forward to today, and he’s still staying true to those ideals. Seeing a need for durable outdoor furniture at accessible prices, Hilton created the Eos Collection (2011), which is sleek enough to work in an indoor dining space, as well. Eos is lightweight – literally and visually – smartly proportioned and very comfortable. Certain to inspire leisurely outdoor living during the long days of summer, this collection was named for Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn and bringer of light. It’s constructed of powder-coated aluminum that won’t rust over time. The Bench is designed for use with the Rectangular Table. Made in China.
