• nan bench

after 24 years of manufacturing a range of traditional early 20th century designs for the garden, we wanted to make a line of contemporary outdoor furniture available.

3 – designed by adrian hope, is influenced by mid century functional design with a strong scandinavian character and humanly considered proportions.
3 – features the traditional hand made ironwork methods with apparent constructional detail that are hope hallmarks.
once again this ironwork is combined with suitable selected solid timber.
the designs are simple, purposeful and noticeably devoid of decoration.

3, is a small limited range – designed for homes & apartments with limited space. (the seating components, when not in use, nest neatly under the tables.)
the hub of the range is the oly stool and a complimentary small round table in 2 sizes.
the bench and a rectangular table in several lengths are in process of development.
one day 3 will also have a chair…

all items are built at our factory in the method of our traditional range with the same considerations for an intended ‘long life outdoors’.
only timber from renewable resources is utilized.

note ‘3’ is also suitable for indoor use. the same items have solid joined surfaces and is available in jarrah, ash and birch ply.
