Its solid oak construction ensures that the Hven bench will last a lifetime with minimum need for maintenance and a simple design that goes well with most interiors. The Hven series is named after the small yet historical island located between Sweden and Denmark in the Öresund Strait.
Anton Björsing is a trained joiner, with the inherent will and properties of wood as his key professional focus. The more complex challenges of the design profession also appealed to the young Swede, however, and after additional training at the design school in Stockholm, his craft-based understanding of the material and the more problem-solving aspects of the design profession came together in a fruitful combination.
