The Teak & Cane bench is a re-edition of the low teak bench designed for residential hostels in Chandigarh. The bench is a 3-seater with cane lattice seating and characteristic V leg assemblies on either end. Each V leg assembly is comprised of a long and short leg piece. A supporting crossbar runs along the length of the bench between the the longer leg pieces. The natural rattan cane is peeled and woven meticulously by hand.

The Teak & Cane bench can be used in multiple settings - as a seating bench at a dining table, as a side table to keep objects on, at the foot of a bed to keep blankets or as an accent piece.
