Bamboo In The Raw

Digging on this set of aluminum benches (back optional) by Gal Ben-Arav. So simple. Some bent aluminum framework and the raw, strength in numbers, support of freshly harvested bamboo. Awesome.

  1. Have you messed with raw bamboo? It cuts and it is not easy to remove all the shoots. That said I like the idea but a much more realistic photo would have a cushion or some sort of fabic on the seat of the bench.

  2. A fun piece of furniture < something to shank people with?

    ..Bamboo is going to cut you.

  3. Thanks anonymous and anonymous for your input. I stand by my assertion that this is a cool idea, even if the execution leaves something to be desired.
