A welcoming bench for the garden or patio gets a contemporary slant from designers Henrik and Rolff. Ray is fashioned in lightweight but sturdy aluminum and comfortably contoured for a long sit. With a section of stylish hues, the bench is powder-coated and has a weather-resistant matte finish. And the grooved detail allows the sun to shine through and leave intriguing shadows on the ground—or permits wind to pass through and water to drain on a rainy day.

Optional seat pad available separately
“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
