"Design is one." -Massimo Vignelli

Lella and Massimo needed casual furniture for their new home near Sorrento. They designed a multi-purpose indoor/outdoor grouping of furniture ideal for home, hospitality and office environments. The very basic shape of the table, bench and stool/side table, gives to this design a timeless character that is quite appropriate to its destination.

Italian natives, Massimo & Lella Vignelli established the Vignelli Office of Design and Architecture in the city of Milan in 1960. Both have been recipients of numerous design awards with examples of their works included in permanent collection of several museums around the world. Today, their projects are associated around graphics and design through Vignelli Associates.

Available in three sizes and a range of colors, the indoor-outdoor Vignelli Bench is equally at home next to a pool, in an entryway or hotel lobby, on a tennis or pickleball court, or at a dining table. The collection is completed by the low table & cube.

This hollow bench weighs 40-53 pounds, but if you'd like to add sand for even more wind resistance, there is a hole with removable plug on the underside. We recommend using dry play sand that can be purchased at most hardware or landscape material stores.

Massimo Vignelli

If you can design one thing, you can design everything, said Massimo Vignelli (1931-2014) who has worked in a number of areas ranging from package design to furniture design, to public signage, to showroom design through Vignelli Associates, which he co-founded with his wife, Lella. He studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and later at the Università di Architettura, Venice. Vignelli went to New York in 1966 to start the New York branch of a new company, Unimark International, which quickly became one of the largest design firms in the world. They designed many recognizable corporate identities, including American Airlines and the New York City Subway. In 1971, Massimo resigned from Unimark, and soon after, he and Lella founded Vignelli Associates.
Heller has created a simple paradigm: good design, industrial production and reasonable prices. The first product line in 1971 was Massimo Vignelli’s stacking dinnerware that went on to win a Compasso d’Oro award and is included in the MoMA permanent design collection. The furniture line began in 1998 with the Bellini Chair designed by Mario Bellini and won a Compasso d’Oro.
