Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby launch the Hakone Bench for Galerie kreo at Design Miami/ Basel 2017 (12-18 June). The bench is a companion to the Hakone Table launched at Design Miami Basel, 2016 and on show at Galerie kreo Paris for the exhibition "à table" until July 2017.

Constructed from simple forms the bench has a concave profile on the top and underside and on either side of the two legs, giving the effect of the wood being forced gently outwards. Barber and Osgerby chose to produce the piece in solid oak, using traditional Japanese carpentry as the starting point for their inspiration. The bench is generously proportioned and deliberately invites tactile exploration. The Hakone Bench will be produced in an edition and sold exclusively through Galerie kreo.
