Konstantin Grcic’s ‘Bench B’ is a modular seating system that’s like a one-seater side chair that can expand, all but extruded, to a long bench of up to six meters. Bench B is part of BD Barcelona’s Extrusions collection. It can be used indoors or outdoors, it can have arms or not, and it can be upholstered or left with a pure aluminium finish.
“I think we have created a kit of parts which can be turned to very different typologies or uses of this bench.” says Grcic. “What is interesting in this bench is that it makes reference to a very famous piece of furniture: The Barcelona Chair designed by Mies van der Rohe. I think it is interesting to make this reference in design. Design is not about inventing new things all the time, design is an evolution of things.”
