Plank Collection by Max Lamb
Updated: Jan 30
The Plank Collection by Max Lamb for Benchmark, consists of wooden shelves, tables and benches with concealed storage, inspired by the traditional English storage chests, box stools and troughs.
The table top consists of three wooden planks supported by the L-shaped legs which makes it look very simple and modern. The fascinating design feature of this collection is the concealed storage in the middle of the table that could be accessed by simply removing the shorter planks above it. Similarly, the bench and the seat, contain a hidden storage within themselves.
These furniture are best used in small houses where there is not much storage. According to Lamb, the main intention of design was to bring together simplicity, strength, durability and economy of material into a thoughtful, functional and light weight product.
