by Folke Bensow

£3,500

Description

An original Nr. 3 Parkbänk designed by Folke Bensow for Näfveqvarns Bruk in the 1920s.
The cast iron ends of the bench are substantial although fine. With its minimal decoration and clean and graceful lines the design is an example of Nordic Classicism -better known as Swedish Grace.
The original, beautifully silvered, planks are solid oak.
An example of the design was featured in the Swedish Pavilion at the Paris Exhibition in 1925.
