The Diamond Bench

The design for the Diamond Bench has been developed from a rustic prototype produced in Sicily by Concrete Editions and now fully realised as an heirloom piece, made by master joiner Sean O'Callaghan.

Sean served a five year apprenticeship with the long established Bedford firm, Watling & Darlow before setting up The Joinery in 1995. He specialises in bespoke joinery, for domestic and ecclesiastical clients, as well as making one-off pieces to commission.

The Diamond Bench has been made from English Elm - three 50mm thick planks - cut, glued and jointed to produce a highly resolved and elegant object, demonstrating Sean's attention to detail and skills as a master craftsman.
