We had previously built a custom table (which we named the 'Insignia') for clients residing in Seattle who reached back out to us to have two benches made to match their table in design. We were thrilled at the opportunity, as the 'Insignia' table was one of our favorite design-challenges. Here is a link to the original table, for reference: http://www.mezworks.com/store/drop-leaf-insignia-walnut-dining-table-steel-nakashima-inspired-steel-frame

The concept for the 'Insignia' collection was motivated by an interest in sleek, minimalist-modern design, with inspiration that arose from an admiration for Nakashima-style trestle bases. With our own 'Mez Works' theme, we used dimensional walnut paired with steel for the base treated with a black-magic patina and clear-coat finish for an industrial element, and added a steel strip through the center of the wood to trace our 'Zeeva' design collection.

For the benches specifically, we used a single slab for each bench that were re-sawn "bookmatches" from the same wood slab. When set next to each other, you can see a mirror image from bench-to-bench in the grain patterns.

1. STANDARD CARNAUBA WAX FINISH | This will allow the color of the steel to remain natural and bright. The steel is ground and polished, followed by several applications of carnauba wax. We will supply you with application instructions and a small wax tin that should last about 5-10 years. Application is simple, rubbing a modest amount on, allowing it to dry, and then rubbing off the excess. 2 applications every few years for maximum effect. Not recommended for humid or coastal climates.
COST | +$0 (included)

2. CLEAR COAT FINISH | This will preserve the natural color of the steel, but will protect it from staining and rusting and requires no upkeep. The steel is ground and polished and will remain natural and bright.

XXS/XS/SM/MD | +$125
LG/XL/XXL | +$145

3. BLACK MAGIC PATINA FINISH + CLEAR COAT | This finish is going to give off a more industrial look, bringing the color of the legs to a deeper/darker grey. Several hand-rubbed coats are applied to the steel legs, allowing drying times between and repeating the application several times until the desired color is reached. This process combines the patina and clear coat for maintenance-free durability.

4. POWDER-COAT FINISH | Powder-coating would allow us to achieve just about any color, matte or glossy. If you are unfamiliar with powder-coating, it is a free-flowing dry powder that is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to form a hard finish that it tougher than conventional paint. It's used mainly for coating auto parts, bike parts and outdoor furniture which require super durable and water resistant finishes. Colors are limitless, but typically our clients prefer a simple black powder-coat. We can arrange to have the legs professionally powder-coated by a pro steel shop in our neighborhood, who charges accordingly for different dimensions.
