TRESTLE collection by John Pawson for Viccarbe

November 29th, 2014 by retail design blog

TRESTLE is a collection of bench seating modules and matching table designed by the renowned British architect John Pawson, which reflects the search for elegance and simplicity that has defined his work over the course of his entire career. TRESTLE features a minimalist almost laconic approach to form, the inverted v shaped supporting legs (or trestles) which are made from solid oak with a thick cross section are the dominating feature, while the seat is available in two finishes: quilted and smooth.

The bench can be combined with the TRESTLE table which works off the same principles as the bench but on a larger scale. Designed for the home environment or contract use a matching backrest for the bench can be attached to adjacent walls in order to provide additional support and comfort, the system is suitable for waiting areas or restaurant seating areas.

John Pawson says about this collection: “The design of the table and bench for Viccarbe sets a refined horizontal plane above graphically spare supports, echoing Medieval functional arrangements of loose boards laid across trestles. The simplicity of line, junction, geometry, rhythm, surface and proportion means that the primary experience is of the beauty of the unadorned oak”.
