Furniture | Waiting Bench AK

Waiting Bench AK is a custom design piece created to sit within the Akin Barber & Shop project. The bench frame and legs were precisely aligned in dimension and position with the vertical Ash timber structure of Akin that set the architectural rhythm inside the barber shop.

The bench is specifically designed to be removable, keeping the back rest fixed to the wall; whilst the seated part can be utilized, moved and repositioned to encourage more social interaction in the space. The consistency of the detail and craft repeated in the bench design inherently incorporates itself into Akin Barber & Shops.
