American designer Mattias Pliessnig built this curvy custom bench out of thin sheets of oak:
pliessnig recently completed 'amada', a design for a private client who wanted a large bench flowing through his living space. the piece was designed to direct the sitter to face multiple directions. the seating unit is made entirely of air-dried responsibly harvested white oak that has been steam bent to create the curvaceous form of the bench.
