With workshops in Dorset and Berkshire, UK, Benchmark works with many of the world’s leading architects and designers on high profile bespoke commercial projects and its own eponymous furniture collection. Organized like a true woodworking shop, the company values craftsmanship, creativity, a deep knowledge of wood and natural materials, and control of the manufacturing process from “tree to finished piece." Rockwell Group is the latest architecture firm to collaborate with Benchmark on a custom furniture collection: Sage by David Rockwell.
Sage combines adaptability and sustainability to create a product that is as good for people’s wellbeing as it is for the planet. Comfort, privacy, flexibility and natural biophilic materials are the hallmarks of the collection.
Designed for workspace and hospitality as well as the home, the collection includes sit-stand desks, meeting tables, dining tables, sofas, occasional tables and storage.
The tenets of biophilic design frame the collection.
This meant natural, non-toxic materials, colors and textures, rounded profiles, and inviting ergonomic shapes.
Offering moments of refuge and prospect, many pieces serve more than one purpose or transform at the touch of a button to accommodate multiple uses.
