Description

Ból, outdoor bench, is inspired by the beds that lined the walls of the traditional Icelandic turf house. Beds that also functioned as seats. On cleaning days, bedclothes would be aired in the crisp arctic winds. Ból transposes the beautiful benches themselves from the dim turf house out into the open air. Ból is handmade in a small family business in Iceland, where 3rd generation of experts keep on mastering the age-old method of sand casting. It is a time consuming but fascinating process, where red hot metal is poured into sand molds. The heavy outdoor bench is designed to withstand extreme weather condition. It is low in maintenance and comes flat packed. Although it is designed for outdoor use it can just as well be used indoor, in private spaces as well as public ones.
