Monumental Custom Ordered Bench by Benedictus & Architect Dom Hans van der Laan

About

This very long wooden bench was custom ordered and adapted to suit a space in a monastery complex in Tilburg These benches come with an email from the Dom Hans van der Laan Foundation confirming that Dom Hans van der Laan did works for this monastery The galvanised metals legs were most likely custom-made by a local metal worker With its distinctive red lacquered finished wood and galvanized metal legs it seems to float in a space We have two of these unique pieces in stock! “The Space of nature has three aspects which leave us at a loss: it is unlimited, without form and without measure. Architecture is nothing else but that which must be added to natural space to make it habitable, that is, delimited in relation to our bodies, visible to our senses and measurable for our intellect.” — Dom Hans van der Laan, speaking to architecture students, 1985.
