Bench by Raw Edges for Bench 10

This bench by London studio Raw Edges comprises three different benches that interlock to create a pattern of horizontal and vertical stripes.Plaid Bench is made up of a plywood bench painted white, a pine bench painted in a mixture of blue and yellow stripes, and a hardwood bench.The bench was one of ten exhibited by The Lollipop Shoppeduring the London Design Festival this month.
Three types of benches has been chosen: White painted plywood benches which were mostly common in public nurseries throughout our childhood years, urban stripy pine bench and solid rustic wooden bench. The benched have been painted to achieve the finished plaid pattern and were machined as well so they could be connected into each other in a cross lap joineries.
