Curved bench cantilevered from a stainless steel leg
The Crescent bench was the sculptural bench that first brought Ben Barrell to the attention of garden and landscape designers. Although it has been part of his portfolio for a long time, it remains a great favourite both with Ben and with clients. Like much of his work it combines the beauty of sculpture with the functionality of outdoor seating.
The Crescent Bench is cast with marble composite and hand carved, and looks and feels like stone witha highly polished tactile finish.
“One of the things I love the most is the fact that this bench, when I’m not sitting on it actually looks like a sculpture and a piece of sculpture very much reminiscent of the work of Barbara Hepworth, who’s name is synonymous with the seaside forms of Cornwall” Laurence Lewellyn Bowen
“The (Crescent) bench looks better every day. I sit on it every morning and I am astonished that I am actually sitting on a work of art.” Melvyn Bragg.
