"Ichi-Monji Bench" by Marc Peter Keane

About

In Japan, the aesthetic of human perfection is known as shin (真) and the aesthetic of being in a natural state is sō (草). Crafted from a gneiss boulder and a slab of black walnut wood, “ichi-monji” is a juxtaposition of these two aesthetics.

The idea of a chair is distilled down to its most fundamental elements: A surface on which to sit, and a leg to hold it up. The base is a massive gneiss boulder and a notch in its surface holds a beeswax and linseed oil-finished black walnut plank as the seating surface.
