U Bench by Luur

March 01, 2016

U-Tube

Luur is a multi-disciplinary design studio from the US with a sleek, streamlined aesthetic which feels utterly fresh and contemporary.  Luur's designs include jewellery, lighting, furniture and landscapes, but our favourite Luur product is the U Bench.  

The U Bench is made of two steel sections, each made from a single sheet of steel that has been rolled into a circular shape with a flat base.  The two sections are then joined together, one with the flat base facing up and the other facing down.  The end result is a sculptural occasional table or bench which reveals a perfect circle when viewed from the side.  Clever, elegant and very beautiful.
