Form & Refine have released a smaller iteration of the classic A Line Storage Bench. The updated version of the classic stowaway bench is 68 cm long compared to the 111 cm long original. Functionality meets clean form to create a solid and versatile bench with a lighter, slightly reduced dimension and minimalistic attitude.
A Line is practical with a large internal compartment for storage. The top slides open via a natural leather pull handle and a notch in the oak construction holds the lid in place while used. Four svelte oak legs raise the bench and lightens the appearance, while the overall design is still solid and robust.
This versatile bench works best as a stand-alone item in a hallway. Store your shoes or clothing accessories in it, and then use it as a place to sit to put them on. It comes in white oiled oak, oiled oak or black stained oak.
Herman Studio on the design: “The stowaway bench is a reinterpretation of a classic and highly versatile piece of furniture. Particularly the way in which it opens with a leather strap is an important element of interaction with the bench.”
