Cheval Benching/Tables, designed by Wout Speyers, are not only classy, but also practical. They are offered in several size and configuration options, including being orderable with or without upholstered seats. This gorgeous ensemble dresses up any space! Featured here with Wing Side Tables by Barbara Barry.
Designer of Cheval Series, Wout Speyers explains, “What determines a piece of furniture’s function? Is it the environment, or its use in the environment? Cheval blurs the borders between these fixed conventions. What appears to be a bench turns out to be a side table in a different setting, or a coffee table. Its function is defined not by its environment or its prescribed purpose, but by the user and how they interact with it.”
Toro (Wout Speyers 2014) Hola! What’s that? Toro is an all-in-one statement. It’s ideal for ergonomic sitting, or just to lean on. With a handy writing table and coat-hanger, it’s a workplace, a chair for conversations and a striking object in itself. A friendly beast of lacquered wood with close-fitting upholstery. And it’s so inviting that you just can’t help sitting on it. Wherever you put it, Toro provokes reactions. Put two Toros next to each other and you have a creative corner.
Wout Speyers redefines the term ‘multifunctional’ in his Cheval Series. Cheval’s curved, clean form reduces complexity while increasing its adaptability, allowing it to serve as a modern bench or sophisticated table depending on the user or environment.
