The backless bench is the original bench. It meets a basic need: to sit on a dedicated support, which is clean and functional.
It is when benches abandoned their installation near roads, that backless benches made their comeback to accompany the emergence of new uses in the city. Without a backrest, their vast available surface is a platform of freedom where one sits and intends to do what one wishes : to sit cross-legged, lie down, work, have a picnic ...The absence of any hidden effect makes its implementation very discreet. The work carried out by Aréa for 25 years on ergonomics has led the brand to offer backless benches which systematically reserve a free space to slide ones feet under the seat and allow all users to sit and stand up easily.
