Don't just sit, sink.

Block Bench Armed

The objective of the cushioned block system is to give you a soft comfortable experience while keeping all the benefits of a solid surface - durability, cleanliness and the beauty of the solid material, in this case wood. 

"During my time in the furniture business, I've learned that people have a love/hate relationship with upholstered furniture. Along with the softness of an upholstered piece comes the natural concerns about damage, staining, dust, life of the fabric and longevity of the style.  The inability to truly get any upholstered product clean without removing covers and going to great lengths is an inescapable reality and a bitter pill to swallow. Through years of trial and error here is our unique solution backed by a U.S. patent."

- Adam Friedman, Designer

The experience of the blocks compressing and forming to the body is unlike any other chair.  This will be one of the most comfortable chairs you will ever sit in. There are many pieces of furniture that seem comfortable in the few minutes of testing before purchase, but after some duration there is a realization very little thought went into designing the chair for comfort.  We have scrutinized over comfort - it is always the first concern, and as a result these chairs will hold you comfortably for hours. Please view our video of peoples response to the Block Chair experience at Dwell on Design.  VIDEO: Sitters experience

Each chair is made from solid domestic hardwood. Wood is responsibly harvested - FSC Certified. Everything is hand made in Detroit using local independent artisans and businesses.
