or Call to Order

The Folly bench is a strik­ing expres­sion of sculp­ture with its dynamic flowing forms and soft lines inspired by nature. Designed by Ron Arad, it is equally artis­tic and func­tional, made of rota­tional-molded poly­eth­yl­ene, and there­fore resis­tant to all phys­i­cal and envi­ron­men­tal stresses, main­tain­ing an invit­ing shape and exciting aesthetic. 

Folly comes in a brown color remi­nis­cent of weath­er­ing steel, rein­forc­ing its concep­tual ties to archi­tec­ture and contem­po­rary sculp­ture. It is suit­able for use in the garden of a private house but also in a public park or square. For every situ­a­tion and season, Folly offers a vital char­ac­ter­is­tic feature with a natural sense of harmony in any space. 

The Folly Bench accom­mo­dates 8 – 10 people at a time. A kit for floor fixing is also available.

Ron Arad

ISRAEL

Ron Arad is known for pushing the boundaries, experimenting with the possibilities of materials such as steel, aluminum, or polyamide. His radical re-conception of the form and structure of furniture has put him at the forefront of contemporary design and architecture.

He was born in Tel Aviv in 1951 and educated at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and later at the Architectural Association in London. Since he has founded multiple design and production studios, including studio One Off, and Ron Arad Architects, in association with Ron Arad Associates and Ron Arad Studio, moreover, he's had a substantial teaching career. He was the Professor of Product Design at the Royal College of Art in London until 2009. In 2011 he was awarded London Design Week Medal for design excellence and became a Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts in 2013.

His ongoing career in design consists of his limited edition studio work and designing for many leading international companies: Magis, Vitra, Moroso, Fiam, Driade, Alessi, Cappellini, Cassina, WMF, and Kartell, as well as many others.
