The Stiletto Benches balance weight and weightlessness.
Each bench, weighing up to three hundred pounds, is supported by shallow notches and slender “stiletto” brass heels. These delicate supports are juxtaposed with the substantial proportions of rough-hewn, construction grade timber. The wood is treated with a smooth finish that highlights the flowing grain and celebrates each knurl, split, and knot. Set within these alluring imperfections, each solid brass heel is discreetly rooted—displaying a disproportionate strength as it echoes the shape of the block it upholds.
The Stiletto Benches come in a variety of configurations, each characterized by a conjoining of intersecting blocks whose significant weight is suspended in an act of effortless balance.
