Stripped back to the essentials in Alfred Homann’s pursuit of minimalist expression and purity, the AH912 Outdoor Bench is perfectly proportioned to sit alongside the dining table and chairs, allowing you to configure your outdoor space to best suit your needs. Homann’s love of soft shapes and precise details is visible in every finely-honed joint and polished surface, creating a seat that is both effortlessly stylish and infinitely practical.
Crafted by the talented artisans at Carl Hansen & Son, the bench has been lavished with care and attention, producing a beautiful result. Made from hard-wearing teak, the bench is naturally resistant to the elements, taking on the characteristics of your space as it acquires its trademark silvery patina.
