this bench, designed by Valentin Garal , is non-discriminatory as it provides space for birds and people too! the piece is entitled “Banca Familiar” which translates to “Family Bench.” This bench was the successful collaboration between the Spanish designer and Le Porc Shop – a furniture workshop that deals in beautiful solid wood pieces made by artisans.
“it requires tender care by all members that surround the Family Bench. with a touch of irony, it is a reflective piece destined to become a point of meeting, discussion and preservation of social relations.“
the bench and the birdcage are made of solid willow wood and exhibit outstanding craftsmanship. the bench elicits conversations about animals and humans and acts as a functional piece of furniture! let’s sit and have a little chat with the birds, shall we?…although, i guess they are still in a cage, hmm?
