Crafted from the finest walnut, the Plank Dining Bench is a straightforward design with a contemporary edge provided by its wide legs and thick wood seat. Designed by Gus* Modern, this bench showcases legs of solid wood endgrain and was made to complement the Plank Dining Table (also available on Fab). An eminently functional piece, this bench is also made socially useful, as for each one purchased Fab will make a small donation to City Harvest, an organization dedicated to rescuing food for hungry New Yorkers.
Canadian industrial engineer David Podsiadlo launched Toronto-based Gus* Design Group in a basement with two friends in 2002. The company’s furniture and lighting offer a contemporary take on mid-century archetypes. Using simple yet original profiles, tailored lines, and honest materials, its unfussy pieces incorporate practical purpose with quality construct
City Harvest regularly gives food to nearly 600 community programs, a service complemented by programs that address longer-term issues that surround hunger in New York City.
