Astral Bench

$26,025.00 - $31,225.00

The Astral Bench is a singular creation, borrowing on the clean, structured lines of Danish furniture design. Constructed of a series of wooden staves joined together, the bench is visually arresting – and, in true Moser form, remarkably comfortable. The design is as flexible as it is distinctive, and can be crafted to specific diameter and length requirements, in a variety of North American hardwoods.

Our showroom model in DC is now available at a significant savings.  We are currently getting ready to move into a different showroom space in DC and the Astral Bench will not be making the move but it can be delivered anywhere in the continental U.S.  The farthest width of this particular bench is 13 feet between the front outside edges.  The depth of the bench is 6 1/2 feet from the back to the front of the horseshoe.  The height of it is 32″.  Please call the DC showroom at 1-800-708-9061 for additional pictures or questions.

Description

In the late 1970s, Tom Moser spent some time in Denmark and fell in love with the tailored design and perfect proportions characteristics of Danish furniture design. The Astral Bench falls in this clean, structured school, shaping space with strict regularity and dramatic form. When light hits this piece, the room comes alive in a pattern frequency reminiscent of a celestial arc – thus its namesake.

The Astral Bench is constructed of cherry “matchsticks” joined in a solid, curving bench seat, which in turn seems to float in midair. The integrity of the entire bench relies on the careful placement of each separate element and masterful joinery techniques. The bench curves at a 128-degree radius, echoing a natural geometry that softens the linear construction of this piece.

The Astral Bench can be made in a number of diameters and lengths and can be built in many hardwoods upon request.
