A piece of found driftwood initiated the design for the Drift bench. The naturally formed fluid lines of that found object provided inspiration for Amanda Levete's exercises in complex curves, angles and subtracted spaces. The Drift bench is an extremely sculptural design whose function, as a seating object, is clear although the primary concern for Levete has been translating her organic, highly sensual architectural language into a condensed form. This cast concrete version of the bench is suitable for permanent outdoor use. Best Furniture Design, Design Week Awards, 2007. Made to order product from Established & Sons.

Made to Order
We work slightly differently to some other retailers where most of our upholstered items are made to order, this way we can produce a product that is unique to you. This process starts with understanding your requirements and our consultants offering furniture solutions that are best suited to you. In terms of fabric there are many possibilities outside of what you just see on this site and we are happy to discuss what will work best for you and your environment.
We strive to keep a selection of our best sellers from the import brands we work with in stock, but to keep this range diverse we aren’t able to hold all items in stock, so a number of our imported items will have lead time out of Europe. We can provide further lead time information during the time of enquiring as this can vary depending on the time of the year.
