The Taiwanese design company Rüskasa demonstrates amazing skill in its wooden bench called ‘RU-ST007 Bench.' These benches defy the look of suppleness with its amazing curves, crevices and buttons. The bench looks as if it is adorned with cushions when actually it is made of either solid maple, beech or walnut wood. The trompe l‘oeil effect is divine and proves Rüskasa is a master of wood carvings.

The bench is minimalist in its design; there are absolutely no adornments, cabinets or embellishments. Instead we see the richness of the material and its grain that looks gorgeous against a minimalist backdrop. Rüskasa makes similar pieces to the bench, such as chairs and children’s toys, which are all made completely out of wood. I love that these pieces are simple so they can be decorated with vibrant pillows, magazines or textured blankets to give a homely feel.
