We can call this Krobo bench designed by Tørbjorn Afdal a royal classic. His name became more widely known after Jackie O and the Japanese Emperor bought his furniture and is still a must for interiors with grandeur to this day.

Design

The elegance lies in the simplicity and downright beautiful proportions. The edge on the side of the seat is not only upright but also protrudes slightly further at the bottom and is missing on the ends. Its legs are also designed with an extreme sense of finesse and because of the curve, they are lifted just a centimeter from the floor in the middle.

At the bottom of the bench are two metal brackets that connect the legs to the seating area at three points. The result is unprecedented robustness and increased load-bearing capacity. What makes this specific bench so special is the rosewood. The patina is truly fantastic, but the real beauty lies in the flame drawings on the seat. At both ends the drawing is dramatic and becomes calmer towards the middle. This produces a true spectacle and therefore attracts attention in the midst of all its modesty which is the strength of this design.

Condition

The condition of this bench is good with scattered some light craquelure in the veneer. On one side the veneer has a slight bulge due to moisture damage from the past. The bench is marked on the underside with a Bruksbo sticker and stamp.

I recently bought some amazing Artwork from AtKris Studio online. The whole experience was amazing. The transaction was amazingly efficient. The crating and shipping of the artwork to the United States from the Netherlands could not have gone smoother and the customer service was spot on!!  Krista was amazing and I highly recommend AtKris Studio!
