DESCRIPTION

For the primitive collector. This stunning bench has been hand carved from a single teak root from the island Madura. Though it is primitive there are beautiful, unexpected, hand carved bevelled legs. Rare.

This bench was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
