Orange 22 is hoping their fans will help them kick-start their new all-natural Botanist Minimal bench at the low price of $299 (MSRP $799.00). Constructed from sustainably harvested poplar and high-grade engineered veneers, the bench is smarter than it first appears. Composed of two distinct elements – a formed bent wood sleeve and a structural base – the bench utilizes spring-loaded pins hidden within the brace to create a seamless aesthetic that is free from unsightly hardware. We first covered Orange 22’s award-winning aluminum outdoor bench in 2007, and the new Botanist Minimalist bench fulfills numerous requests to make an all-wood version of the original for residential interiors. In order to get the project off the ground, Orange 22 has launched a KickStarter – for a very limited time only (fund-raising ends on Aug 28th), Botanist fans can get their hands on the new Minimal bench at a rock bottom price. So what are you waiting for?
