Cecile Manz on the design “Design processes can be chaotic. The path to the moment of clarity – namely the final product - often leads through a forest of doubt and disorder. Among growing piles of model foam, dust, cardboard, wood and coffee you find a surprisingly creative place - sometimes to produce a needle it takes a haystack. 'Workshop bench’s design is deliberately simple, almost archetypical, giving it a quiet, clean strength. The frame of solid oak harmoniously blends in with the seat and back made of laminated hardwood veneer, thereby eliciting a light yet robust expression.”
