Perpendicular, Furniture System

Design by Thomas Bernstrand

As its name suggests, the Perpendicular park bench is formed by components aligned at 90° angles. Sleek wooden slats form a seat and backrest positioned at angles that make seating more comfortable and ergonomic. The steel parts join together without any visible welds, giving the bench a sleek appearance. The benches can be complemented by optional tabletops on either side. With its streamlined proportions and contemporary details, Perpendicular is a perfect complement to modern architecture. The park bench and backless bench, together with the side tables, can be interconnected to form lengths in a variety of sizes and configurations.
