A striking pairing of industrial strength and organic modern aesthetic versatility. The Eiffel BenchÕs sturdy, blanched mango wood seat rests atop modified hairpin legs to create an adaptable seat that looks just as good nestled next to a dining table as it does standing on its own. The mango wood used to hand-build the Eiffel Bench is the byproduct of commercial mango plantations. The most commercially sought-after mangoes grow in the early years of a mango tree's life, meaning trees are harvested and replanted shortly after peak fruit production while the wood is still young and strong. On the soft end of the scale for hardwoods, mango trees are susceptible to fungi in the sapwood, which yields a unique black color in the wood's naturally swirled grain pattern, lending itself perfectly to creating unique, hand-crafted furniture. Due to the construction process and materials, slight variations that enhance the piece's character should be expected.
