Make a statement—one good bench is all you need.
A balance between form and function is a key principle we look to uphold 
when approaching any design. The tactile simplicity of our Stabellenbank 
is no different—staying true to this foundation by placing great emphasis
 on precise workmanship in joinery. Our craftsmen’s expertise in sustainable materials, simple connections and joinery enhance the architectural integrity 
of each and every bench—and hey, we think it looks good too.

Archetypal Alpine
Stabelle seating has been at the heart of homes, chalets and taverns in the alpine region for centuries.
The stabelle’s legs are dovetailed into a solid wooden seat without the 
use of glue or nails. Any weight applied to the seat gains extra stability through the slanted legs, spread apart. This interaction of forces provides long lasting durability.

Two Stabelle chairs; Romedo Guler, 1883
The peasant chair’s form, widespread in Graubünden, has a deconstructed carved backrest, which is embedded in the seat board and wedged at the bottom. The slightly conical and slender legs are carved at the end to a round pin—split in the middle. The pin is inserted into a completely pierced hole in the seat so that it is visible on the surface. In the split center of the pin, a wedge is driven so that the chair leg completely sticks inside the seat board.

Stabelle seating became a staple in the home and on the farm—replacing stools as the commonplace piece of furniture from the 16th century onward.
