Titikaka Teak Bench
One of the most exquisitely crafted benches ever created, Titikaka teak bench is a tour-de-force of mesmerizing undulation that has been visually augmented by the repetitive nature of the narrow horizontal planks of teak. Indeed, the arrangement of teak slats is almost like a window blind that has literally been draped from the bottom front to the bottom back over a gently curved form. Coupled with the teak bench’s beautiful contour form is the subtle rippling of each horizontal teak slat. The results are not only profoundly sculptural but they are wonderfully ergonomic – Titikaka teak bench is incredibly comfortable.
