Okoumé garden bench
The Ripples bench, winner of the Golden Compass in 2004, changes its attire to become an outdoor bench by using okoume wood, also known as Gaboon, native of tropical West Africa and hence perfectly suited to withstand humidity or light rain. A recognised icon, its craftsmanship transmits the ever-delicate poetry of Toyo Ito.
Bench made from okumè plywood composed of various superimposed layers with crossed veins. Water draining hole in three inner concave seats. Inner metal reinforcement. Lower panel made from birch plywood, hot-press curved and with beech veneer. Finish with outdoor coating. Adjustable feet.
