The Slagbaenk Uses Two Found Objects to Form a Multifunctional Item

Constructing one furnishing out of other existing pieces isn't the most common method for building entirely new pieces; nevertheless, the Slagbaenk Bench has been built from a pair of dining chairs and five planks of timber.

Rather than beginning from scratch, designer Rasmus Baekkel Fex, took two pre-made wooden seats with sufficiently spaced bracing. The lengths of lumber fit through the gaps perfectly, allowing B°Fex to assemble a broader spot to sit, as well as a place to store things. A panel laid on top of the leg supports creates a base for this compartment, while a piece of pine positioned across the tops of the seats forms a lid, offering the space to for more people to sit on the Slagbaenk Bench.
