Cork Bench by Naoto Fukasawa
This bench provides a sense of gentleness through its rounded body, while transmitting a sense of friendliness and a sense of affection at the same time. One of the interesting aspects of this bench is our body’s contact with the material. Since it is a bench, we sit and put our hands on it or we can lie on it. Cork is known for its natural temperature-regulating properties and it is known to maintain a similar temperature to our own bodies, thus providing a unique connection between the user and the product. As a result, this bench offers a very comfortable experience.
