This Cantelever bench may seem like a fairly ordinary object, but its construction aspects give it a whole new meaning. The wood from this bench was actually treated with a compound created by Norwegian company Kebony. They have developed and patended a process which transforms the qualities of typical soft woods into those of hardwood by using waste products form the sugar industry.

Not only does the Cantilever bench have this fierce quality, designers StokkeAustad made the bench to be reconfigurable.
