The R50 Shoe bench is a composition of modern design and exceedingly high functionality. R50 can be optimally used in narrow hallways or as a stylish addition to the bedroom. Below the bench, the available storage space can be used as a shelf for shoes, baskets, bags and all sorts of other accessories.
In the production of the R50 Shoe bench I try to pay attention to a resource-conserving and environmentally friendly process - from design to shipping. The shoe bench is finished with a water-based varnish. In the scope of delivery, the bench can be disassembled into its individual parts.

With a background in craftsmanship, Marvin Kasper developed a passion for design early on.

His journey melds traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, to craft inventive solutions.
