A fresh approach to the classic museum bench, BassamFellows’ version is a sophisticated hybrid, ingeniously constructed using two separate frames, one made in hand-worked brass and the other in solid wood. The inner brass frame buttresses the bench’s generous horizontal span, giving it balance and strength.
The design of the Museum Bench allows for multiple configurations. The outer wood frame can hold a seating cushion or tray, depending on the desired use. The bench is fully adaptable in both its traditional function and, when combined with the tray, as an elegant and graciously proportioned multi-use table.
Both frames are plainly visible to underscore the piece’s structural integrity and synthesis of natural material. As with all the solid wood elements, precisely keyed joinery details emphasize the luxury of craft. The bench is suitable for both residential or contract use – including high use areas. Can be used outdoors in teak (covered terrace recommended.)
Materials: Solid Santos Rosewood, Teak, Walnut or Ash. Oxidized Brass inner frame. Cotton Canvas, Linen or Leather Cushion.

“Bassam and Fellows are proving that the Modernist master Mies van der Rohe was only partly right: Craftsmanship and style, as well as God, are in the details.” – Vitals
