The Meet Bench takes inspiration from the traditional piano bench. A versatile, multi-use piece, its name refers to the two stabilizing tubes that elegantly join under the seat. The bench is also just big enough for two people to sit together – and 'meet'. Use Meet Bench in the hallway, as a chair in front of your writing desk or in the bedroom. It also works as an occasional table on which to display books or a lamp. Timeless in character, the design is based on contrast, the opposition between its masculine, industrial legs and the expressive embracing curves of the seat.

- Norm Architects
Founded in Copenhagen in 2008 by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, Norm Architects specialize in residential architecture, commercial interiors, industrial design, photography and art direction. The company name reflects the group’s emphasis on the importance of drawing inspiration from norms and traditions within architecture and design – particularly the Scandinavian design principles of timeless aesthetics and natural materials, and the modernist values of restraint and refinement. Guided by these principles, Norm Architects produce design that unites good materials and craftsmanship, while embodying beauty, traditions, history and, most importantly, timeless simplicity, where there is nothing more to add or take away.
