Bench 01 is made of solid walnut timber that is CNC routed to resemble an arched bridge. As with all designs by Bahraini - Danish, it is meant to be self-supporting and simply slotted together. ""The idea is that you can build our work and take it apart again,"" says studio co-founder Christian Vennerstrøm Jensen. ""The bench is joined by elements into a structure that is stable and strong enough for you to sit on"". Bahraini-Danish was founded in 2016, with Jensen working from Copenhagen and co-founders Batool Alshaikh and Maitham Alumbarak from Bahrain. Bahraini-Danish draws upon the heritage of both countries in its designs, including Bench 01, which features in The Mindcraft Project digital exhibition.
