Contemporary Bench With Striking ContrastBench #13 is a contemporary bench that is long and slender, perfect for any hallway. The Sapele has been treated with a chemical that emulates 100 years of aging. The is that the color is from the wood, not a pigment, so the bench practically glows. The contrast with the white cast concrete is dramatic, adding to the benches presence. The seat has a subtle angle to add to the comfort and to break the flat seat plane. The dramatic movement of the shifting wood that makes up the seat completes the composition.
