ABOUT THE OBJECT

The form of the Sawtooth bench is derived from its namesake: the teeth of a saw blade.  We wanted to explore creating a furniture piece that geometrically mimics the form of the tool used to create it.  We combined a series of oak boards (formerly barn boards) into a butcher-block configuration with sawtooth edges running along the bottom edge.  Simple glass legs support the bench – their transparency and crisp contemporary form offering a stark contrast to the reclaimed wood’s rustic appearance.
