orange22’s botanist series

The Botanist line of benches, end tables and cocktail tables by Orange22 takes minimalist sensibility and adds a splash of femininity to an otherwise austere template. Each piece is composed of a single piece of bent aluminum with rounded corners and is available in three varieties: Natural, Flow and Flora.

The Natural version is covered with an epoxy coated real wood veneer, with your choice of seven different finishes. I love the selection – if you’re looking for a lighter template, maple and rift oak will suit you best, while those who want a richer palette can choose from dark ebony and wenge.

Both the Flow and Flora versions sport a high impact powder coat with five colors: blue, red, white, black or brushed aluminum. The obvious showpiece is the Flora version, which sports a flowery graphic that is precision-cut by water jets. While black or white look sharp, nothing beats the amazing energy of the red flora bench!
