Design Story

Like the keystone of an arch, Looper performs the task of supporting people and objects.
The Looper Bench was designed to pay homage to one of Michael Graves iconic architectural elements, the keystone, the central component of an arch.  Like a keystone, the Looper Bench performs the task of supporting people and objects. With its continuous (looping) solid wood filament, the Looper Bench can be extended for a longer bench or shortened for an accompanying accent or coffee table.
