Jesús Gasca is the principal designer at Stua, a furniture company that he founded in 1983 in San Sebastián, Spain. With his company’s name standing for solo tengo un amor – “I have only one love” – it’s Gasca’s mission to improve the habitat in which we live. His Deneb Teak Bench (2003) celebrates materials in their purest form, combining austere aluminum with smooth, slatted teak. The precision-engineered frame is assembled from four components that fit seamlessly together in support of the teak top. Clean-cut V-shaped legs are configured to increase stability and allow two or more benches to be put together for a unified ensemble. Sustainably harvested teak slats can be oiled to maintain their color or left to develop a beautiful silver patina. This bench can be used both indoors and out, on its own in an entryway or garden or with the Deneb Teak Table. Rubber glides protect floors. Assembly required. Made in Spain.
Anodized or powder-coated aluminum; sustainably harvested solid teak; rubber glides.
