Sleek Outdoor Bench Inspired by Airplane
May 3, 2013 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Reminiscent of the long wings of a plane, Nichetto’s inspiration for his Earhart Bench comes from the famous pilot Amelia Earhart, who disappeared in the 30s flying a red aluminum Lockheed Vega.
Designed and constructed of aluminum honeycomb for French company La Chance, the bench is a modern take on the Tête-à-Tête seat, one that shines in any space, in a small urban outdoor or indoor living room.
With two backrests, the lightweight linear design allows side-by-side companions to face each other which the designer hopes will establish connection and encourage interaction.
