The Stiletto Benches balance weight and weightlessness.

Each bench, weighing up to three hundred pounds, is supported by shallow notches and a slender “stiletto” brass heel. 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.
