bench with handmade artisanal textiles
This bench was designed as part of a collaboration with couture-trained fabric artist and designer Maki Yamamoto. This bench is is composed of a collage of handmade textiles: the seat is hand-painted linen and the sides are cotton and linen.
This bench is part of the Gendo Collection--meaning “movement” in Japanese. All pieces are a collage of handmade and collectible textiles, including couture’s pleats, flowers and bows; painterly color and hand-sewn lines. Textiles are created and combined to project texture, shape and movement—not just stretched tight to cover a surface.
Custom sizes and designs are available. Each piece reveals the drama and artistry that is possible in hand-made, one-of-a-kind seating.
