Entry Bench

My clients came to me with a rough idea of what they wanted for a custom Entry Bench for their new home in Vancouver B.C. Through a back and forth design process the design was born from all the criteria they wanted, drawer for items like dog leashes, shoe rack, and a surface to places keys and other items to grab on the way out the door. All of these considerations dictated the final form in layout and dimensionality. From there I let the language of the material dictate the styling of the piece. When working with Black Walnut, I find it naturally speaks Mid-Century Modern or Art-Deco and rather than going with my regular west-cost modern look, I use the language of these genres to help bring the piece to what I hope is an honest design outcome of both materiality and function, while giving it my own interpretation of these genres.
