Arise Bench is a riff on the similarly refined step stool-cum-table of the same name from Copenhagen-based designers Jens Kajus and Claus Jakobsen of Million. Here the double-surface concept is extended to create elongated version for both seating and a place to rest a book or hold a drink. The bench can be used at the dining table, as an occasional piece in entranceways and lobbies or even as stylish storage at the foot of the bed. Exquisitely crafted in solid European oak in a choice of 2 finishes.

With a commitment to exacting production in Denmark and timeless design, Million cofounders Jens Kajus and Claus Jakobsen collaborate with designers and architects to create lighting, furniture and decorative items that uphold Scandinavian design tenants.
Jens and Claus both attended the Danish Design School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, yet a decade apart. Jens focused on visual identities and branding, mostly at his award-winning company e-Types. It was there that he and Claus—a wood craftsman who spent 7 years overseeing design and production at HAY, then another couple of years for Muuto—co-designed much of the furniture for the e-Type design studios. The pair joined forces in 2015 to launch Million in Copenhagen.
