sam hecht: 'table, bench, chair' for established & sons at milan design week 09

‘table, bench, chair’ by sam hecht image © designboom sam hecht’s ‘table, bench, chair’ was on view at established & sons exhibition at milan design week 09. the idea to combine several seating opportunities and functions into a single product was initiated by a trip on the tokyo metro by sam hecht. here individual seating spaces are designated along a communal bench. hecht used this principle as a starting point and has similarly differentiated various functional areas along the length of his bench with the help of traditional stream bent beech frames. these appear to slice through the solid wood bench that is the constant element in the design. three versions of ‘table, bench, chair’ are available; a chair, bench and love seat. designated seating space is profiled into the solid oak base.
