Entry Description

The STRATA Beam bench marries Meldstone™ technology
and wood in a stylish variation on the concrete and wood
classic. Cast concrete anchoring elements are bridged by
wood seat slats to form an uninterrupted span. End pieces
are subtly faceted, providing a pleasing play between light
and shadow. The wood seat offers warmth and softness
where the body interacts with the material. The three-seat
bench is offered with and without back. Optional arms are
available on both versions. STRATA Beam is solidly
grounded while retaining a lightness of scale appropriate for
use in multiple applications. A natural compliment to the
original STRATA bench, it is designed for use with STRATA
tables to create comfortable outdoor settings with a decided
design edge.
