A Bench with Add-Ons
A settle is a long wooden bench with a high backrest, often with storage underneath, used for seating and storage. It originated in medieval times as a type of chair and evolved into a bench with storage in the 17th century. Settles were commonly used in homes and public spaces such as taverns and churches.
Low Settle by Studioilse for De La Espada is part of the Seating for Eating collective consisting of settles, benches, and stools. In part inspired by archetypal English vernacular furniture, which in its time was a practical stripped-back solution to a social need, the designs are carefully detailed and reassuringly familiar. Furniture that you can sit on together, but that still leaves room for the individual.
