French Turned-Frame Brutalist Bench in Solid Elm, France, 1950s

About the Item

If you're looking for a unique bench that breaks away from traditional French designs, then this bench is the perfect choice for you. The bench dates back to the 1950s and this design era was known for both aesthetic and natural materials. The furniture was often handmade and thanks to that, always had a rustic quality to them. Although this heritage can be found in almost every detail of this bench, the turned wooden frame gives the bench a certain quirkiness to it. The bench's wooden frame, which is twisted, becomes the focal point of the design, and combined with the big slabs of wood, it strikes a perfect balance between sophistication and uniqueness. This bench is not just a functional piece of furniture; it is a piece of art and craftsmanship if you want to add some depth and warmth to your surroundings.

  • Blue Fiberglass Bench by Walter Papst for Wilkhahn, Germany, 1960s
    By Walter Papst
    Located in Antwerp, BE
    Stunning blue fiberglass bench designed by Walter Papst for Wilkhahn, Germany, 1960s. Walter Papst was one of the first European designers to use fiberglass to fabricate furniture. The design of the bench is naive, almost simplistic since it is made out of 1 piece of molded fiberglass. But nonetheless, it is a very sophisticated item because it was made with beautiful slanted angles, which gives it a very sculptural and architectural look. The stunning bright blue color makes it pure eye candy. The blue color is the original color and could be described as 'modernist blue' or 'le corbusier blue...
