dimensions: L 82" x W 62" x H 20"
material: chestnut, black walnut
Made from locally-sourced, 2-inch thick chestnut slabs, assembled in a continuous loop and joined at mitered corners with hidden hardware. The Library Bench is designed to be physically monolithic, while visually it appears to float - its walnut legs tend to disappear in its shadow below. Structurally, the L-shape naturally counteracts lateral movement. It is further supported by recessed vertical slabs, acting as shear walls and disguised as bookends. The natural live edge of the wood gradually becomes exposed as it moves further away from the clean-cut corners; inviting a closer look at its detail.
