floris wubben shows a nest chair ‘eyrie bench’ during milan design week, especially produced for the exhibition ‘green island’ – dutch design for a new city garden.


the nest of a bird is an inventive piece of natural architecture.
designers, who work a lot with natural material, were always fascinated by these natural structures… and the ‘eyrie bench’ is an ode to these natural constructions.

for aMAZElab we created the new design ‘eyrie’ bench, on show at the exhibition ‘green island, dutch design for a new city garden. during my search for branches I was specifically interested in the forms. the specific forms of these wooden branches inspired as well in making this design. for making the nest steam-bended ash has been used. the connections between the ash slats are made by an ash pin and wood glue. the frame has been formed by wooden branches.says  designer floris wubben.
