SAIC L bench was created exclusively for Design Collab. Design Collab No. 2 asked 12 students in the Designed Objects curriculum at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), "What does 'live well' mean in the context of home design?" Student Jennifer Lee designed a super-functional piece of furniture with a surprising shape. Part seating, part storage, bench wraps around the sofa, tucks in the corner, or sits pretty in a breakfast nook—all the while keeping clutter at bay.
