BENT Collection by Tristan Frencken
View Slideshow

Simple is the name of the game when it came time to design the BENT Collection. Tristan Frencken worked with coated aluminum and slightly bent sections out of the backrest in order to hold it on with the help of visible screws. The cut-outs kind of look like eyes, giving the somewhat 1950s design some personality. You can’t help but smile when you see them.

The coated aluminum allows for indoor or outdoor use of all three pieces, which includes: a dining chair, a lounge chair, and a table.

Frencken even designed BENT SKIN, felt pads to make the seats even more comfortable.
