STRATA benches have strong horizontal planes and large flat surfaces with an angularity that makes them come alive. The bench seat is thick at the center, progressively thinner as it expands toward the edges, and faceted where angles come together. The extension of the seating plane past the steel base at the ends makes the seat appear to float. Benches can be placed end-to-end, or the end of one bench can be positioned against the back of another.
