Migo is the result of personal reflections during a time of change and uncertainty, the start of the Covid pandemic. It serves as an adapter for the various tasks to perform during the day, wether it being a place to sit, perch or used as a side table. You can use it in various ways, there is no front or back, no right or wrong. Ultimately it’s a companion or a friendly little helper.
Made in the workshop of BENCHMARK out of red oak to provide strength, it can be cut from a single plank of wood for optimal grain consistency and minimised wastage.
The chair was designed for the occasion of Discovered, an exhibition by Wallpaper* and American Hardwood Export Council offering a series of personal perspectives on the experience during the lockdown. Presented at The Design Museum in London.
