StokkeAustad created a whole outdoor seating system with great flexibility - the public bench in Kebony. The round concrete base allows for the seat to be turned until fastening in its final position. The steel frame comes in many different colours, and the concrete base gives a solid foundation both visually and as a functional anti-theft.
Jonas Ravlo Stokke and Øystein Austad: "We are constantly hunting to explore new materials, and it was very exciting to learn about Kebony. The bench project actually started with looking at what possibilities Kebony could offer in terms of public furniture. We wanted to use the material in a new setting, because of its superior qualities.
