Designed in Berlin and made in Germany, the ‘Zebe’ table and bench are emblematic of the innovative practice of Objekte Unserer Tage. Material-driven and conscious of creating a new tradition within design, their pieces are typically minimal and often feature unique finishes. The clean lines of the ‘Zebe’ setting were inspired by the architectural legacy of Mies van der Rohe; “Their temple-like appearance appears grounded and closed. The seat extends like a projecting roof and offers space to linger, space for presentation, and space for staging”, a statement from the studio explains. Designed with a duality of purpose in mind, the bench doubles as a side table and the entire setting is weatherproof, so can be used indoors or out.
