The Dwell bench is a tribute to the Shaker design philosophy, whereby an item of furniture is in itself a physical expression of guiding design principles. Concepts such as order, union and purity are represented in the symmetry, scale and simplicity of form shown in the finished piece. In Dwell, these timeless values are embodied in stained wood and lacquered steel by a bench that is rationally constructed, clean-lined and emphatically functional.
