bravuogn 2009
by: Stefan Furrer

Bravuogn and its companion Preda are a pair of furniture I designed for our newly transformed mudroom into a sunroom. While Preda is a shoe rack with a high perching box of drawers, Bravuogn is a sturdy and almost squatting shoe bench. It has two big drawers containing recycling bins and a low slightly slanted backrest that resembles the many resting benches in the Swiss mountains.
I used Mendocino cypress for the structure and Spectratech™, a man-made sheet good, for the drawer fronts and the backrest.
Bravuogn, by the way, is the name of a tiny little village high up in the Swiss Alps where you could rest on one of those benches.
