Contemporary Athletics x Bennu Greensboro Chair


A collaboration between Cedric Hudson of Contemporary Athletics and Bennu.

The Greensboro Chair pays homage to those Greensboro sit ins that ended on July 25th in 1960. It represents the men and women who by choosing to sit down, stood up for so much. Made from bold Walnut wood displaying rich streaks of black, using a series of interlocking joinery techniques along with present and Mid-Century Modern design we were able to create a piece that exudes robust visuals through opulent upholstery combined with vigorous cross sections, mirroring the accord of those involved in the event.
