Concept

Per Borre designed the Astral bench in 1979, which subsequently won a host of awards for its sculptural shape and innovative construction. The bench is comprised of only two repeat elements that integrate to create the back and seat.

Astral is available in two standard sizes, however due to the modular makeup of the design, it can also be customised for special projects.

Astral is a functional seating sculpture that is said to have more in common with architecture than basic furniture design. The open circular seating provides for a socially engaging space.

Astral is constructed of hardwoods that are suitable for outdoor as well as indoor use. Astral is used in waiting areas, courtyards and parks, and the strong character of the design goes well with both historic and modern architecture.
