Buoy Bench By Palette Industries


Working with a private client Palette Industries has turned their stock Buoy Bench into an artful high end version. The “Ornately Canadian” pattern was hand silk screened with gold leaf paint under the technical direction of highly acclaimed Canadian artist Bill Laing, adding a distinctly Canadian style to the piece. The pattern is a whimsical commentary on Adolf Loos’ concepts of Ornament and Crime where ornate is considered excessive and soulless. Lots of Canadian imagery, eh?



More than you’d think, can you identify all the Canadiana in the pattern?
