Romeo & Juliet

Part of the Romeo & Juliet collections

Biophilic design bench

Not only does this sturdy, wooden garden bench offer a comfortable place to sit, but it adds a touch of green to an often colorless urban or industrial setting. Create true architectural harmony by lining several benches up and  - the distance between the trees remains identical. The bench is made of Jatoba Hardwood (FSC 100%) and comes with two inner pots and two outer pots.

Jatoba wood has exceptional qualities. The durability and stability is extremely high for long, thin slats, which was a key design issue for the whole Extempore range. After intensive collaboration with several authorities such as universities and nature & wild life organizations, Jatoba hardwood came out as the most stable and sustainable species that is widely available.

Choose wisely
At first, Jatoba wood might give off its red color every time it comes into contact with water. Just like other types of wood, Jatoba will gradually become rougher and start to turn grey as a consequence of exposure to the sun and rain. Small cracks and crevices can also appear as part of this process. We strongly advise everyone to treat the furniture with our Wood Protector.
