Designed in collaboration with Jess Sorel, Link marks a new opportunity for designers—to achieve the scalability, elegance and creative freedom of custom, one-off site furnishings with added value and simplicity. Link’s uniquely adaptable design and modular components easily accommodate the design and nuances of any given site, both physically and aesthetically. Link’s dramatic, modern aesthetics and virtually limitless configurations allow it to adapt to a diverse range of landscapes and applications. Key options include the inline or piano key orientation of the wood slats on the seats and backs, which allow for straight, mitered, arced, or even serpentine arrangements. Two different radii for the arced piano key orientation allow for varying degrees of curvature. Link benches can also be specified with or without backs and arms; and can be configured with metal supports, concrete block bases, or in wall-mounted and top-of-wall mounted styles. Link specified with steel supports or block bases lends the bench a robust sense of permanence, while wall-mounted and top-of-wall mounted styles offer qualities of tension, balance, and levity.
