We couldn't help but share our discovery of the Dodai bench, from Peter Marigold. Part of the Japan Creative's Simple Vision exhibition at the Salone de Mobili 2012 and produced by Japan's Hinoki Kogei, the bench's most alluring feature is its spontaneous texture. Created through the process of simply splitting the massive Cypress timbers, the resulting surface is inherently unique and entirely intriguing. The seat, assembled with wooden rods and grass, can be rolled back and the bench's interior used for storage. For more information, visit Peter'st website here. Via Contemporist.
