The compact Sungai bench gets its timeless beauty from its simple design and the use of high-quality natural materials. The seat is woven from robust seagrass that can withstand high loads, while the frame is made from leftover teak branches that are not otherwise used in furniture production. This creates its charming look with the not entirely regularly shaped legs and crossbars, which represent a sustainable alternative to other woods.

Lacquering was deliberately avoided in order to highlight the natural color of the wood and its small imperfections. The result is a piece of furniture that not only gives your room a natural elegance, but is also practical. Sungai is versatile: place it in front of your bed, in the hallway or anywhere you need seating. For example, it helps you and your family put on your shoes, but can also be used as an unusual console or side table.

SOEJI products are artfully crafted unique pieces. Due to hand manufacturing and natural material variations, they may vary slightly in size, color and shape.

Main material: seagrass

The benches are made from plant fibers. They therefore smell and feel wonderfully like nature.

What is commonly referred to as “seaweed” by basket makers is actually not an (under)water plant, but a small, palm-like plant that is common on sandy beaches in the tropics of Asia. The leaves of plants often cultivated by humans are separated, cut into strips, dried and then processed by hand.

Other materials: teak

This bench is handcrafted in Java, Indonesia.
When selecting local producers, Soeji attaches great importance to fair pay and good working conditions. Only experienced and adult craftsmen work in the companies from which they purchase their goods. No harmful chemicals are used in production. Since all work steps are carried out by hand, the production process hardly produces any greenhouse gas emissions. They ensure all of this through regular on-site visits and permanent personal contact with the companies.
