A bench in its purest, simplest form.
Wu is a minimal bench with maximum design impact, typical of the simple, functional nature of the maker’s furniture. Stripped of unnecessary ornament and decoration this is the pure essence of what defines a bench, incorporating the barest minimum of timber required in the vertical and horizontal supports.
Namon Gaston’s high-quality, honest design is underpinned by a deep understanding of the materials with which he works. His work is often inspired by the possibilities presented by the basic functional requirements of a piece of furniture and how designers approached these challenges in the past.
The Wu bench makes an excellent addition to a hallway, entrance or study, wherever occasional seating is required. The bench is compact in size, perfect accommodation for ‘two small ones’.
Namon encourages customers to visit him at the workshop and see for themselves the processes involved in making their piece of furniture. If you are able to do this, we strongly recommend it, and would be happy to assist with arrangements.
