The award- winning Astral 350cm outdoor bench was designed for Fredericia by Borre in 1979. The distinctive, sculptural design and ingenious construction is innovative as well as aesthetically pleasing.
The bench is semi-circular, and is made up of two elements that are combined and repeated to form the back and seat of the bench in such a way that the bench bears its own weight. The result is a sculptural form providing functional seating.
Height: 81cm x Width: 350cm x Depth: 175cm (Seat Height: 42cm)
Materials & Finishes
Hand made in Denmark with jatoba with oiled finish for outdoor use. The construction forms a semi-circle whereby the bench bears its own weight and creates a unique seated sculpture.

Borre pursues the expressive and sculptural properties of logical construction. This ambition is very much fulfilled in his masterpiece, the 1979 Astral Bench for Fredericia, where the logic is the repetition of two basic parts to create a self-supporting structure.
Anyone that has played with matchsticks at some point in their childhood becomes fascinated by the endless possibilities for combining shapes that the sticks provide. Furniture designer Per Borre was one such child, but for him, the appeal of identical elements has only grown with age.
Fredericia began as a humble Danish design house, born of a proud heritage. A heritage of unfaltering dedication to the perfection and progression of the design craft. Fredericia work with some of the world’s greatest designers & architects.
