The Mook bench family is a urban furnishing element due to the precision of its dimensions and the appropriate use of the materials of the elements from which it is made. Its radically horizontal nature assumes the formal prominence of its lightweight appearance. The thin sheet steel sections of the supports at the ends of the bench strike a contrast with the thickness and solidity of the wood, reinforcing the abstract and weightless aspect pursued by this design.

Mook was developed within the context of the “Warsaw Designs” event, in which four architects were invited to design a bench for the city. The name Mook is the result of a play on words with the name of the Warsaw district Mokotow, where the author’s studio is located. 

The collection consists of a chair and two bench models, 1.50 and 2.20 metres in length, all of which allow for optional armrests. In addition, there is a 1.50 metre long backless bench and stool which can be added to form a picnic table set. The shared geometry of the collection makes it easy to create groupings in long alignments that shape and limit the public space.

A combination of sheet metal supports with a thickness of 10 mm and a single section formed by FSC®-certified tropical wood or pine wood beams. The supports are painted in the standard RAL colour chart. Anchored with 12 mm-diameter rods, screwed into the embedded metal supports and fastened to the ground with epoxy resin.
