The BeA Bench is a modular bench. The user is provided with a simple information leaflet: determine the required length by combining several basic components, then choose the various seating or table elements and place them at random on the basic components. The basic components exist in different lengths: 180cm, 90cm and 60cm; the seating components in 60cm, 90cm, 120cm, 150cm en 180cm (each piece either without any, with just one or with two arm rests). The table components are 60 cm wide and exist in several wood types. All components can be covered with any of the fabrics.
