or Call to Order

The Tafel table bench by e15 is an instantly capti­vat­ing piece due to its combi­na­tion of sculp­tural aesthet­ics and prac­ti­cal func­tion­al­ity. This bench, designed by the renowned sculp­tor Hans de Pels­macker, repre­sents his explo­ration of the intri­cate connec­tion between a piece of furni­ture’s func­tion­al­ity and its impact on the surrounding environment.

Notably, the Tafel bench has earned its place in several museum collec­tions, empha­siz­ing its signif­i­cance in deliv­er­ing a univer­sally distinc­tive seating expe­ri­ence. It’s avail­able in a range of finishes, allow­ing you to choose the version that best comple­ments your space. Addi­tion­ally, there’s an oak version designed specif­i­cally for chil­dren, featur­ing the same propor­tions but in smaller measure­ments, making it a wonder­ful addi­tion for younger users.
