Scale, proportion, quality of detail and finish are key components of Dyehouse, the emerging furniture brand of ONE17 Architects managing partner Mark Lee. The same could be said of Yorkshire Sculpture Park's exhibits, making them a rare and rather perfect fit.
Sitting atop a gentle slope at the renowned exhibition space, the 300kg oak bench is in good company, including British and internationally acclaimed artists such as Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, KAWS and Not Vital. Unlike its majestic companions though, the bench is (obviously) designed to be sat on, providing a picturesque perch in the open-air gallery.
'We set out to design a collection that is not only striking aesthetically, but is also practical and can be used every day,' explains Lee. Crafted with the help of Huddersfield-based furniture designers, the Dyehouse Collection is pleasing in its simplicity, and, only six months into its creation, seems to already be a resounding success.
