This recent version of the Ribs Bench, which has been remanufactured by DesignByThem, is made from FSC certified steam-bent hardwood. This manufacturing method avoids toxic resins associated with plywood bending and increases the product's lifespan. Hardwood is durable and easy to maintain. Each rib is fastened together with an aluminium module, allowing the product to be easily updated and repaired over time.
DesignByThem also offer a product stewardship program whereby products can be returned to DesignByThem to be either repaired, reused or recycled.
