The curvaceous Ribs Bench was conceived by Australian contemporary designer, Stefan Lie, for DesignBy Them and is soon to grace the refurbished foyer of Sydney’s Opera House. It was selected by Luchetti Krelle, the interior design studio contracted to reinvigorate the new space.

Characterised by ‘ribs’ sculptured around an adjustable aluminium spine, the seat’s undulating design holds both ergonomic and aesthetic appeal. The frame of the Ribs Bench is composed of sustainable steam-bent hardwood, making it flexible enough to take on varying forms.
