In 2003, architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows began drafting their vision for a new kind of American luxury company. A genuine, fully integrated lifestyle brand stemming from their shared aesthetic sensibilities, it would encompass architectural projects and interiors as well as impeccably crafted furniture, lifestyle objects and personal accessories. BassamFellows’ pioneering Craftsman Modern aesthetic, which marries architectural authority with a minimal-artisanal philosophy, was introduced with the debut of the iconic BassamFellows Tractor Stool at the 2003 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
A fresh approach to the classic museum bench, BassamFellows’ version is a sophisticated hybrid, ingeniously constructed using two separate frames, one made in hand-worked brass and the other in solid wood.
The design of the Museum Bench allows for multiple configurations. The outer wood frame can hold a seating cushion or tray, depending on the desired use. As with all the solid wood elements, precisely keyed joinery details emphasize the luxury of craft. The bench is suitable for both residential or contract use – including high use areas. Can be used outdoors in teak (covered terrace recommended).
