What’s special about the way Bento is assembled?
We didn’t want to make flat-packed furniture that would require tools. We tried to find a way to make it as easy and enjoyable for the customer as possible. That’s why we decided to go for no tools, no instructions. It should be as easy as it could be, and that’s basically the idea.
What is the most important element of the design?
Instant likeability. We wanted to make sure that Bento is clear in its design in the sense that the viewer instantly “gets” what the chair or the table is all about. That the furniture communicates with its form, style and material what the idea behind the design is.
