Storage Bench (Slagbænk)
A little non school related project for the FSC-award 2013
A reinterpretation of the classic storage bench. The intention was to create a piece of furniture that would combine storage and seating in the home. At the same time, we wanted a lighter expression than the traditional storage bench .
The storage bench has inspiration from the old '50s teak furniture but also the more modern and industrialized world.
The furniture is made of two types of wood to bring out details and give the illusion of an almost floating seat. The materials are the dark teak and light ash, both of which are FSC - certified woods.
The product is likely to come to the customer as partially assembled, consisting of the box and the beam with legs.
The customer would mount the leg beam before mounting the bench on the wall.
Alternatively, there is the possibility to produce the product as a "flat pack" solution that would be assembled in the home. This will add some visible fasteners of the product inside. In return, it saves transportation space for the benefit of the environment and economy . Package size will be approx. halved in thickness.
