Design David Kim
Solid oak wood
Made in USA by Bernhardt Design

From a distance, the Aris bench appears so thin it almost recedes into the space around it. However, simply rub your hands along its tapered legs and intricate joinery work and you’ll understand the craftsmanship required to create such a seemingly light, airy piece of furniture.

Born in Los Angeles, David Kim spent his early childhood in Korea but returned to UCLA to study philosophy. Pursuing an interest in art and design, he moved to NY for an internship at Nas Industries, an apparel manufacturer, where he was exposed to the manufacturing process, branding, and graphic design of sports apparel. Subsequently applying for acceptance into the product design program at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA, he was awarded a Martha Chandler Endowed Scholarship.

Bernhardt Design was founded in 1980 by the 125-year-old Bernhardt Furniture Company. In 2001, Bernhardt Design cemented its reputation as a leader and innovator in furniture design and production by partnering with Ross Lovegrove to create the iconic Go Chair, the world’s first magnesium chair. Since then, President Jerry Helling has assembled an international roster of creative talent, including Arik Levy, Jaime Hayon, Jeffrey Bernett, Lievore Altherr Molina, Yves Béhar and Charles Pollock.
