For use indoors or out, Israeli designer Jaïr Straschnow looks to lightweight but highly durable aluminum for an essential bench that anchors Weltevree's colorful Bended collection. The wobble-free seating owes to its extremely strong but flexible construction achieved by bending metal plates inward at a 45-degree angle, with connecting screws hidden and any sharp edges eliminated. Finished in a maintenance-free powder coat, either the backrest version or the flat bench can be used on its own in a seating area or paired with the Bended dining table.
- With backrest: 33.1" h x 55.1" w x 17.7" d (84x140x45cm)
Without backrest: 17.9" h x 55.1" w x 17.7" d (45.5x140x45cm)
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.
