or Call to Order

The Tafel table bench is imme­di­ately appeal­ing for its sculp­tural yet func­tional shape. Designed by sculp­tor Hans de Pels­macker, the bench reflects his work exam­in­ing the rela­tion­ship between the func­tion­al­ity and the envi­ron­ment of the furni­ture. It is included in various museum collec­tions for creat­ing a univer­sally, unique sitting expe­ri­ence. Tafel is avail­able in a variety of finishes. In its oak version, Tafel is avail­able for chil­dren with the same propor­tions, but smaller measurements.
