“Once a product can successfully fulfill more than one function it has even more reason to exist.”
The established designer currently resides in Amsterdam. On occasion, he gives workshops or lectures, but he’s mainly busy working in his studio. Jair Straschnow has a great passion for creating smart, ingenious products: “I’m a big fan of multifunctional furniture. Once a product can successfully fulfill more than one function it has even more reason to exist.”
This idea gave rise to the design of the Tablebench as well. The well-balanced classic design of a picnic table can often be experienced as static and limited in its functions. Designer Jair Straschnow got inspired by this observation and developed a modern and multifunctional interpretation of the picnic table: the Tablebench.
His latest addition to the Weltevree collection is the Bended Series. This aluminum garden furniture set consists of a table, a bench with a backrest and a bench without, and a stool. The series is made by bending aluminum sheets at a 45 degree angle, which creates a flexible yet sturdy construction that adapts to the ground it stands on. In short, the Bended Series will never wobble.
