À La Dérive is a minimal bench created by France-based designer Ferréol Babin for Friedman Benda. Ferréol Babin dedicates half of his time collaborating with various furniture and lighting editors where he can incorporate his singular vision and approach of design. The other half is spent on making unique pieces, with an obvious brutalist yet delicate approach. Dirty-hands, mix of mediums such as painting, sculpture, design and handcraft play their role in each of his creation. His projects are always based on an awareness of function and rationality, combined with a poetic and emotional dimension. The bench is constructed in sweet chestnut with hand carved wedges.
