Designer Afteroom Studio
The Afteroom Bench is an evolution of Audo’s celebrated Afteroom Chair and a lasting tribute to the sleek lines, quality craftsmanship and marriage of function and form seen in Bauhaus modernism. By reducing the amount of material to a minimum, the visual appearance of the bench is enhanced to a maximum. Set on a slender, powder coated steel base, the oblong seat is gently padded for comfort and upholstered in either black or cognac leather. A small, circular black marble tabletop extends from the side of design as an elegant platform for small objects.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Founded and directed by Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei, the studio’s mission is simply to create beautiful products which will increase in value with the passage of time — design with which one can grow old. The Taiwanese-born designing duo began their Stockholm-based design studio with the notion of creating modern objects that would only grow more beautiful over time. " Beyond their own work, they see their studio as a launching point for designers around the world who share their philosophy. The inspiration derives from an intriguing interest in forms, senses, proportions, materials and cultures. The thoughtful duo looks to the past as a route to the future, intending their products to grow as treasures, to take their place for the next generation of designers. Time passes and, Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei, that's just the point. The philosophy pivots around simplicity and honesty. The true essence of respecting wear and tear around the central idea of the passage of time.
