Canoe Bench …
Genuinely reclaimed from old working canoes …
Bali is an island province of Indonesia and is a tourist hot spot with the western world.
Local traditions remain strong with local populations and one of the more famous is the construction of colourful and ornate canoes.
Originally used for fishing by locals in the turquoise-blue waters off the islands shores, they now play a part in the huge tourism industry in the many island resorts as well.
Although modern, mass-produced synthetic canoes based on traditional designs now feature largely across the island; the original designs were hand carved by expert crafts people from teak wood.
This tradition still lives on among local populations and canoes that have come to the end of their useful working life are now commonly adapted by hand and made into bespoke bench designs that have proved hugely popular, particularly in western markets.
Totally unique with hints of its previous use …
Traces of the characteristic, bright colours can be still be seen on the timber and the wear and tear of its sea-faring life have been preserved in the finished article as well.
Although the seating and platform areas are carved from smoothed and shaped timber for practicality of use.
Only the finest, a grade teak is used by locals in the original construction of their canoes to ensure long lasting usability for many years.
The strength and durability of this reclaimed timber is passed through into the naturally aged teak canoe bench you see hear, making it perfect for withstanding the elements all year round without the need for external treatments.
Due to the bespoke nature of these benches not all examples are exactly the same as the one pictured, however, the spirit and shape of the design itself is replicated throughout.
