This is the Twig bench and the Twig cube, and these are designed by Pinch. The furniture in the Twig series are made out of copiced hazel, has a very easy design and is perfect in a norwegian home (because nature is such a big part of norway). These are recommended for indoor use and are not as durable when you use them outdoor. I think this is a shame, because I would have loved to see the bench on a porch or near by the garden. But, you can always use this under a roof or on a patio, as long as you shelter it from hard wether. Either way, this is really beautiful to look at, very natural and a lovable piece of furniture.
