Orange22 Botanist No Ornamentation Aluminum Picnic Bench

Debuting in 2008, the Botanist Blank Canvas project features the original, limited-edition Collections of eight designers. Each designer began with a blank Botanist end table, cocktail table and bench and then imprinted them with a unique design. Not only are these pieces eco-friendly, durable and stunning, they also give back: a portion of the sale of every product in the Blank Canvas series goes to a charity of the designer's choice. This minimalist bench features a design of irreverent statements by Claude Zellweger, principal and co-founder of One & Co. who practices design across a wide array of disciplines. Designer Claude Zellweger on the No Ornamentation Series: What was your inspiration? ''The 'No Ornamentation' series comments on the systematic overuse of ornamentation in contemporary furniture. The resurgence of decorative elements has been a welcome change from the unflinching minimalism of the early 2000s but it has also given birth to an array of products that have used such ornamental surface treatments merely to cover up their mediocrity. One & Co. applauds the furniture for its simplicity yet chooses to have its cheeky manifesto applied to it. Thus the typographic application results in ornamentation in its own right.'' Why is it important for you to give back? ''It's obvious that the world we live in is not a balanced one. How can we - the lucky ones - enjoy our prosperity when it seems unattainable to others? Giving is one of many avenues to address that biggest of problems. Architecture for Humanity has proven that good design can directly benefit those in immediate need – due to displacement, poverty or catastrophe.'' This Design Benefits: A percentage of the sale of the No Ornamentation Bench goes to Architecture for Humanity, a non-profit organization set up to promote architecture and design to seek solutions to global social and humanitarian crises.

About the Designer

Claude Zellweger

Claude Zellweger  

Claude Zellweger, principal and design director at One & Co, is an industrial designer who practices design across a wide array of disciplines in the furniture, sports and technology world. Zellweger, who was born in Luzern, Switzerland, sees the role of designer as that of creating for people's known and unknown needs. Designers – he believes - have to anticipate the new and increasingly sophisticated fictional architecture of our desires. Zellweger also believes that by making the complex simple and likeable, the designer is able to provide relief for tension. Zellweger's point of view developed after he graduated from Art Center College of Design, California in 1997 and spent several years working for well-known Silicon Valley firm Pentagram Design, where he designed products for clients such as Motorola, AT&T, Polaroid. His most visible effort of that period was the 2002 Latitude design language for Dell, the world's most sold notebook line to date. In 2001, Zellweger joined San Francisco's One & Co as a partner and creative director. During this time, One & Co's work in the sporting goods industry – with partner like Burton, Fila and Nike – received recognition and caught the attention of the tech industry. In recent years, Claude Zellweger has helped to grow the firm to become one of the Bay Area's dominant young design forces. Today, companies such as Kodak, Microsoft, Kensington and Sony are calling on Zellweger to envision and lead the development of their brand and design. Zellweger's recent furniture design for Council has been called ‘ a much needed infusion for the West Coast to the international furniture world'. Claude's work has been internationally recognized in museums and competitions alike, including awards from , ID Magazine, IDSA, BusinessWeek, IF Industrie Hannover and the Chicago Athenaeum Award. Claude is also a regular lecturer and member of design awards committees.
