The Diagonal bench is created to give a sense of simplicity and symmetry at first glance only to reveal a small detail that was slightly off looking closer.
Both pairs of legs are connected using transversely diagonal tubes that face opposite each other on either end of the table. When the bench is seen from the end, the diagonal tubes form a perfect X. Inspired by the constructions of scaffoldings at building sites, the combination of the light construction and the dark material creates a distinct, graphic and minimalistic profile.
Signe Hytte is a talented Danish designer who graduated from the Design + Business school TEKO in 2012. “The essence of my work is simplicity. I aim to create functional objects that can be of everyday use. I design honest solutions, both in terms of construction, materials and aesthetics. Reducing a piece to its core is - to me - the most challenging and difficult aspect of designing, but also the most rewarding.” – Signe Hytte
