Think of it as a picnic table set cut down the middle: this multifunctional picnic table and bench pairing works as well alone as paired with another Tablebench 2-Seater or the extended 4-Seater version. Use it to eat off of or as a work surface, indoors or outside. This ingenious tweak on a classic lives up to designer Jair Straschnow's tenets: "If a product can successfully fulfill more than one function, it has even more reason to exist.” The Israeli-born, Amsterdam designer created this functioning concept for the Holland house of design Weltevree, which focuses on high-quality, essential outdoor furnishings and lighting with a singular aesthetic and environmentally minded process. The cement-grey steel frame is anodized and powder-coated; the planks are crafted from long-wearing Accoya, a weather-resistant, non-toxic wood sourced from sustainable FSC-certified timber.

The bold and bulbous wood-burning Dutchtub hot tub grabbed our attention in 2013, and with a wider range of equally unorthodox, high-quality, yet essential outdoor furniture and lighting newly on offer from this Holland house of design, it was high time A+R roll it out stateside as the brand's first North American dealer. Perfect poolside at home or in hotels, or take the to-go Beach Rocker or Guidelight seaside or camping.
Quality of life is what drives the Weltevree family, and that includes their approach to design: from FSC-approved and -certified timber, much of it harvested from Dutch forests; to premium steel and finishes. To them, it’s about “indulging experiences that promote well-being. We totally believe life is about what you experience; not what you own.” We can totally get behind that.
