Inspired by the Salt Flats of the Great Salt Lake and the solitude of open space, Quietude is an elegant, mid century modern bench of solid wood and steel that explores the connection between stillness and seclusion. Much like the stark landscape of the West Desert, Quietude is filled with subtle complexity in the details and layering of materials. KilterDesign’s strong design aesthetic is on display here with the simple, monolithic wood slabs and their tactile richness showcasing unique character and history. Quietude is designed to give the user a moment of silence—incorporating clever, yet meaningful spaces used to house nature’s calming scents or imagination’s wildest stories.
This mid century modern bench was awarded: DesignArts Utah 2011 Honoree—Industrial design / Furniture.
