Young artist and wood worker Steven Banken from the Netherlands has a bright future ahead of him introducing beautiful art with environmental purpose. Sheaves is a bench whose functionality is hinged on the seasons. Every winter, these reeds are cut down to be used as a summer seat. Once the summer months have passed, the organic material will begin to crumble and loose shape. So, to assist nature, return your furniture piece back to the outdoors and redeposit it to provide wildlife with nesting material. In his own words, “The reed bench is a seasonal product that behaves with the old nature and crafts rhythm.”

Stainless steel clips hold the reeds in place bundled together in their shades of brown and yellow. Easy as a breeze to decorate with in the season that celebrates all things island.
