Cratere Benches by Binome-Jardin Turn Cut Trunks into Firm Cushions

The sight of these Cratere benches by Binome-Jardin makes me smile, because they present a uniquely different way to consider the design of standard furnishings.

The collection of organically formed seats may count on most of its shape and structural support from a whitewashed polyester resin, but the whimsical look of these fetching frames prove primarily to exhibit the exquisite beauty of the oak logs that they embrace.

Such incredible contrast is created between these undoubtedly man-made objects and the natural wooden components that they feature with pride. Segments of sliced logs reveal their rings of years lived in the forest, surrounded by a material that's got little comparative history or character. The two fuse together quite beautifully in a way that makes these Cratere benches by Binome-Jardin a sort of symbol of the contemporary urban environment.
