This bench was designed by Antoni Gaudí (1852 - 1926), a Spanish architect, whose style was highly individual and distinctive. His concept was to integrate architecture - by tying together a building's structure with it's decorative elements including its furniture.

This distinctive bench is a miniature replica of the Batlló double chair bench designed in 1907, for the dining room in a home in Barcelona by the name of Casa Batlló. It's two seats are defined by a central armrest and are at opposing angles, which gives it an unusual and unexpected appearance. In this way, it breaks the rules of the classic look of a two-seat bench.

It has three front legs and only two rear legs. The two rear legs are an extension of the integrated seat and they also function as a backrest support. The ergonomic shape of the backrests are typical of Gaudi's attention to comfort.

While the craftsmanship of the bench is exquisite, it is delicate. The pieces are held together with tiny screws and at some points on the bench they can come away from each other easily. It needs to be handled carefully.
