Item Description

IconCaretDown

Steel in powdercoat / Concrete screed on wood bench

"One–Ton is an outdoor bench that is made of concrete as a reminder of Singapore's old public benches, complimented by a touch of modern materials and colours. Just like the neighbourhood and park benches of old, One–Ton serves to revisit concrete public benches that can be used for resting or socializing in outdoor spaces.

The name of the bench is based on a clever play on the Singaporea-localized word Wanton (one-ton) Mee, and how the word would roll off a foreigner’s tongue in his/her first encounter with the dish.

One–Ton is pun-iture that aims to celebrate Singapore’s iconic hawker fare amidst an increasingly international population demographic and the influx of other global cuisines."

* Please note the natural tones of the concrete screed will vary in production.
