Torben Skov has designed a bench which consists simply of two foldable clamps holding a plank in place. With no need for assembly screws, this is a simple, easy and portable piece of furniture with multiple functions. As a seat, or as a coffee or side table. As a window sill in houses with large glass facades. As a bench on the terrace, in the garden or inside in the hallway. As a shelf for displaying products in a store, as a welcoming seat in a large hall or as a place to rest in a museum or gallery.
Torben Skov’s long career as a graphic designer is clearly reflected in his furniture. In its structure, the Bench is almost like lines drawn in the air. The horizontal wooden plank, the slanted load-bearing steel legs – both parts strict geometric compositions, which simultaneously pay homage to the architectural principle of the distinction between the bearing and the borne. The two vertical structures bearing the horizontal plane. In this piece of furniture, the tension from the plank and the weight of the person sitting, or the weight of the things placed on the Bench, help to lock the structure in place.
Clamps made by welder Mikkel Kjærholm, plank made in the workshop at Kløvermarksvej.

Furniture from A. Petersen is crafted with the intention to renew the Danish design tradition and carry it into the 21st century. Not in a grand or rapid way, for the sake of scale or tempo. But in a measured, serious way, for the sake of our current time as well as posterity, because furniture should last a lifetime, and hopefully even longer. A good piece of furniture only becomes more beautiful through time and use – a life lived leaves its mark in the materials.
