The bench is made of solid beech in an old,
traditional bentwood technique. The bent
element in the bench is four meters long.
It’s diameter and section varies in different
parts so that wood follows designed shape.

technique to produce durable and stable
furniture.

PROCESS

mass production

The tradition of bent wood
in south-east Europe
is a direct Thonet heritage.
Nothing has changed
in the production technology
since then.

Today, the skilled workers
prepare the wood in same
steam ovens and bend wood
by hand following the procedures
older than a century.
