“We were contemplating the launch of our outdoor range and wanting to show a piece that was in some way representative of a tree as we wanted to give a sense of the furniture we were showing being outdoors. At the same time we really wanted to communicate something that is often overlooked about the material we use to manufacture our products- namely American hardwoods- and that is that timber is in fact carbon that has been captured out the atmosphere and locked into a functional item for a very long time. No other material that furniture is made out of can claim to be carbon negative- a property which is becoming increasingly important for the wellbeing of our planet. The bench therefore is a visual representation of the furniture “coming out of the air” and meant to suggest the form and function of a park tree with a bench offering some shade.” says Stephen Wilson
