Designer Alvin Tjitrowirjo’s appropriately named Linger Bench provides a fantastic concept for a casual sit, maybe a casual conversation. Meant to infuse comfortably into natural surroundings, each bench is handmade and hand-bent into its shape. Although this isnt’ the first time this type of material and style’s been utilized to develop furniture, the Linger Bench is interestingly shaped and compact enough that it looks like it should easily adapt itself to several types of interior and exterior design themes: from garden spaces, to clean contemporary gallery or loft spaces, to a warm and lightly colored corridor or foyer.

Думаем, Вам будет интересно узнать о скамейке, которую изготовил индонезийский дизайнер Alvin Tjitrowirjo. В первую очередь поражает материал, который выбрал для своего творения автор — это ветки ротанга.

Мало кому известно, что такой вид растения отличается от других пальм тем, что имеет очень тонкие стебли — от 2 до 5 сантиметров в диаметре. Ротанг — это собрат бамбука, он также быстро растет.

Изделия из такого материала очень хорошо сохраняются на открытом воздухе, они не разбухают и не трескаются от высыхания, потому что ротанг растет в тропиках, где обычно повышенная влажность.

Плетёная мебель из него экологически чистая, так как эти пальмы растут вдалеке от цивилизации и не впитывают никаких вредных веществ. Любое изделие из ротанга можно покрыть лаком, что придаст ему более яркий и своеобразный вид.

Основным поставщиком этого материала является Индонезия. Неудивительно, что его охотно используют местные дизайнеры.

Скамейка, показанная на фотографиях, идеально впишется в современный дизайн интерьера, а если учесть, что она не боится влаги, то будет незаменима для сада или открытых веранд.

Плавность линий этого творения, а также упругость и гладкость материала, из которого она изготовлена, позволяют думать, что сидеть на ней будет очень удобно.
