Expe­ri­ence the extra­or­di­nary crafts­man­ship of the Dip & Double Dip Bench, metic­u­lously designed by Chris Howker for B&B Italia. These exquis­ite benches, avail­able in a single size and two beau­ti­ful shapes, embody the perfect fusion of artistry and func­tion­al­ity. Constructed from a 1.5 mm thick stain­less steel sheet with a circu­lar sand­blasted finish, they exude a mesmer­iz­ing sculptural presence.

Chris Howker used cutting-edge tech­nol­ogy encom­pass­ing milling, bending, and welding tech­niques. The benches emerge as stun­ning mono­liths, show­cas­ing a capti­vat­ing inter­play between soft, curved forms that grace­fully project open areas with a more squared-off aesthetic. This strik­ing contrast enhances their visual allure, evoking a sense of solid grandeur while main­tain­ing an elegant minimalist appeal.

Indulge in unwa­ver­ing solid­ity as the Dip & Double Dip Benches seam­lessly blend robust construc­tion with refined aesthetics.
