With its strong horizontal lines, Mies Bench seems like a more than natural addition to the minimalist series from Copenhagen's Million. The geometry of the design scheme is leavened by its rounded edges, the perfect frame for a deeply padded seat upholstered in either fine textile or rich leather. Yet the bench's slim overall profile assures its flexibility when paired with a table or as a standalone player.

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.
