Located in a former convent, Les Bernardes Cultural Center needed special seating for their many events. To capture the austerity and discretion attached to a religious convent’s ambiance and translate it onto the seat, while making it comfortable as well. It was an intense working experience in order to achieve a mature result in a short time. We limited ourselves on the materials and production techniques we wanted to use, so the result would be a bench that could have been made a hundred years ago. Ageless appeal and sobriety looks for a seat that needs to stand the test of time. It has a lightweight appearance yet its materials make it robust and enduring.
