The “relax” bench design took a year to create. The inspiration came while on vacation – noticing many benches in parks and walkways. After sitting in many benches it was discovered that design and comfort did not always match.
The sketchbook came out and the intent was to create a bench with ultimate comfort and the look of interior furniture. The first drawings were focussed on having arm rests on both ends to look like a couch. Then the reality of function, aesthetics, manufacturing ability, and cost changed the focus.
