Modern Minimal Beam Bench Reclaimed Structural Oak Beams Welded Steel Frame



This modern Minimalist bench is constructed from two structural oak beams that appear to float upon a welded steel frame. These historic beams were salvaged from a Bed-Stuy brownstone during demolition, likely dating from the 1860's the character of the oak timbers is enhanced by the hand-hewn adze marks and hand-cut mortises. As seen in images benches are finished in natural oil with blackened steel or white, measuring 17" D x 98" L x 20" H. This is a bespoke piece so custom dimensions, materials, colors and finishes (both interior and exterior) can be accommodated. Please inquire for pricing. All Stefan Rurak Studio pieces are designed and handcrafted in Brooklyn New York.
