Vignelli Bench (2023)
Made by Heller
The Vignelli Bench is made of single piece polyethylene, making it suitable for indoors and out, and is equally at home next to a pool, in an office space, on a tennis or pickleball court, or at a dining table. It is part of the Vignelli indoor-outdoor collection which includes a multi-use cube, table, rocker, and benches. The benches weigh 40-53 pounds, but sand can be added for even more wind resistance, through the hole with removable plug on the underside.
The benches were designed in 2005 by Lella and Massimo Vignelli, known for their ability to bring clarity and timelessness to everything they create. These benches they created for Heller are modern design at its best. Aesthetically pleasing, highly functional, and designed without ego, the Vignelli Bench Collection surpasses the definition of modern. According to the Vignellis, design should be semantically correct, syntactically consistent, pragmatically understandable, visually powerful, Intellectually elegant, and timeless.
“Design is one.” – Lella & Massimo Vignelli
