Benchmark Contract Furniture has launched the Pak and Garda collections. Manufactured in Italy, the outdoor furnishings are composed of sustainable and recycled materials.
Inspired by Rationalist Italian architecture, Pak was designed for Benchmark by Italian furniture designer Antonio Larosa. Pak has a solid aluminum frame, and the seat is constructed of recycled composite wood slats with the option of a stone-like section made from recycled materials. It has a multi-functional off-center armrest.
Meanwhile, Garda is a modular bench system designed for both outdoor and indoor use. An aluminum base supports seating and optional planter boxes made of recycled wood composite slats. The customizable system is architectural in shape and inspired by the natural surroundings of Italy’s largest lake, north of Verona.
