Bodge Bench by Gitta Gschwendtner for the Stepney Green Design Collection

East London designer Gitta Gschwendtner is going to make a one-off three-seater version of her Bodge Bench as the first piece chosen for the Stepney Green Design Collection curated by Dezeen.

The bench will be made from a single piece of wood supported by equally spaced legs, with seat backs arranged at various angles along its length similar to the six-seater version (above).

Chairs and benches in the Bodge range are usually made from oak (above and below), however this unique piece will be made from olive ash.

Dezeen has been commissioned to curate a collection of products designed by east London creatives that live near to new housing development VIVO and we will be publishing more designs as they are added to the collection during the next month.
