Kirv is a line of ergonomically designed tubular steel outdoor low-maintenance furniture intended to be left outside all year. Handmade in the UK, the colorful collection built with 304 grade stainless steel with a bit of added chromium and nickel, withstands exposure to the elements due to the steel’s anti-corrosive qualities and strength.
Kurv’s designer and metalsmith, Alex Moore, spent a lot of time refining the profile of the seats to make them as ergonomic and as comfortable as possible. The close spacing of the tubes on the benches, for example, provides added comfort and support.
Kirv benches function as sociable multi-functional seating systems: they can be used with a tabletop, around trees, or both.
The benches come in high and low back versions, and like the entire Kirv collection, are made to order.
