Ben is a stool, a side table or nightstand. Architectural space usually creates many corners and edges; such as in walls, floors, windows and doors. The sculptural shape of Ben inherently relates to this and has the ability to take away some of the stiffness of a room, adding an outspoken expression and liveliness. And so, “Ben” is a small sculpture for daily use, with effects on a space that can be quite remarkable.
Ben is completely made of wood, no metal parts. Ben comes in one piece and if treated well, it will stay in one piece for many generations. Ben is handmade in Potsdam, Germany, in ash, douglas pine, pear, maple or smoked oak. All wood-types are responsibly forested, mostly in Germany, otherwise in central Europe.
