Fly Bench

Bernhardt Design Sale price

Regular price $1,687.00

It's easy to see the connection between the Fly bench and its name. Created by acclaimed designer Yves Behar, it is all about tension and balance. Tension between the seat's mass and the lightness of the triangular bases. But also the tension and balance needed in the sail of a kite or bird's wings to allow them to soar. This restrained, yet elegant piece also balances modern form with the natural characteristic of wood, and is a beautiful addition to a hall or living space, or at the foot of a bed. Béhar's approach combines the application of new technologies and unique functions with a humanistic perspective. By fusing poetry with pragmatism, innovative ideas are applied to the products: bringing story and message into the product experience. This unique approach has been internationally recognized in museums and competitions alike. Yves Béhar is also the founder of fuseproject, an integrated design agency dedicated to the development of the emotional experience of brands through story-telling and spans products, environments, graphics, packaging, apparel and strategy development. Béhar’s work has been featured in two solo shows. He is also the recipient of numerous design awards for his work around the world.
