The riven bench is an ideal display for natural curves and figuring of cleft oak. Enough growth shape to be interesting with added comfort. Wedged profiles and reliable strength enable a design ready-made for good posture and durability. In its simplest form, there is still individual character and beauty of natural shapes.
