The best designs incorporate functionality alongside visual appeal and garner added points for sustainability. It’s no surprise, then, that a new furniture collection called Sage stands the test of time by incorporating each of these elements. The Sage Collection is a furniture assortment that caters to both the home and office environments. In a partnership between American architect David Rockwell and renowned English furniture craft studio Benchmark, the Sage Collection features streamlined, functional design with multifaceted appeal.

It can be used as a room divider, media center or bar. The collections’ table options range from side tables to coffee tables to work surfaces. Each solid-wood piece stands as an example of the ever-present Benchmark focus on sustainable design by meeting the standards required for WELL-certified buildings.  Sean Sutcliffe, founder of Benchmark said, “Working together with David and his team, we have created a collection that we can all feel very good about. In a world that is full of plastic solutions , we think that the Sage collection brings a very fresh look using the most modern of materials — solid wood. We hope that its users will benefit not only from its aesthetics but also the inherent wellness it will bring.” For the office, the collection offers round, oblong and rectangular meeting tables with rounded corners and copper detailing. An adjustable sit-to-stand desk further represents the signature style and is available in a variety of woods and finishes. For the home environment or casual office, the collection includes a lounge chair and bench, with or without a backrest, which are all made from natural materials . This dedication to plastic-free materials extends to the upholstery fabric, made from coir, latex, sheep’s wool and recycled cotton. In fact, the entire collection has earned a DECLARE label, a certification that ensures humane worker treatment and material transparency for each product. David Rockwell, founder of Rockwell Group, said, “My team and I were inspired by the simplicity of Benchmark’s approach and their passion for finely wrought craft and honest materials to create a collection that is visually calming and intuitive. With productivity, healthfulness, and comfort in mind, we wanted to create a vibrant collection for what people want today.” + Benchmark Furniture + Rockwell Group Via Dezeen Photography by Petr Krejci via Rockwell Group
