Touch Bench with Backrest

To touch is both to feel physical and sense emotionally. Touch is a collection of universal benches and other objects. Their special quality lies in the hand-carved surfaces that engage our instinctive impulse to feel something, and reflect our hunger for more tactile surroundings in the digital age. The benches are hand-made in Bosnia Herzegovina using Zanat’s wood carving skills, the current nominee for the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity List. The carvings on the benches take two man-days to execute and – since the craftsmen carve the pieces at random, without drawings – each bench is unique as no two carved surfaces will ever look the same.
