Iceland native Hlynur Atlason was a political science major when he was invited to attend an open house at Parsons Paris, a branch of the New York school. "There were all these people doing these really interesting things in art," he recalls. "I switched paths right there." To pursue a career in product design, he transferred to Parsons in New York, where he still resides today. Handcrafted from solid wood, the Von Bench (2018) was inspired by a chair by Lucian Ercolani, who founded the British furniture company Ercol in 1920. Topped with a Kalahari leather seat pad, this half-seat, half-table solution is suitable for entryways, living rooms and meeting areas. Made in the U.K
