UMIWild ash bench, large
Nordic minimalism with aesthetics at heart
The large bench in wild ash from the UMI series is designed by the Norwegian designer Jennifer Cena. UMI means sea in Japanese, which has strong references to the Nordic and simple design. The designer’s idea was to create a natural expression that harmonizes with the Nordic spirit. The result has been an aesthetic series of seating furniture in FSC-certified wild ash with hand-braided, natural hemp belt that fits perfectly into the Nordic home, where simplicity and functionality are keywords.
The UMI series in wild ash consists of 4 sustainable seating furniture including stools and benches. We are sure one of them fits perfectly into your home decor. UMI can be used in the hallway, in the bedroom, in the dressing room, along the dining table, in the bathroom or other places where an extra seat is needed or where you could use an extra detail.
You will find UMI in wild ash with natural webbing.
A series in sustainable materials
UMI is made of solid FSC-certified wild ash. When you choose FSC, you contribute to a more sustainable world. This is your guarantee that the wood comes from responsible forestry, where the people and animals that live around the forests have been taken good care of. Hemp webbing is an incredibly durable, beautiful and sustainable material. The hemp plant is very environmentally friendly to grow in relation to cotton, as it can grow in the north without the use of pesticides and without having to be watered.
The hemp webbings are marked with Oeko-tex, which is one of the leading certifications without toxins. We use it to protect both you and the environment against brominated flame retardants and other unwanted and potentially harmful chemicals for the sake of you and your family. These labels demand stricter requirements than the current legislation regarding the use of substances that are harmful to your health.

Jennifer Cena is a designer from Norway who was born and raised in the Norwegian mountains. This has given her a very special relationship with nature, which she repeatedly reflects in her designs through expressions and choice of materials.
She was born in 1979 and has a strong background from the School of Art and Design in Bergen. There is no doubt that she has a distinct sense of aesthetics and a penchant for natural materials and organic forms that is rarely seen elsewhere.
Even before she finished her education, she had a whole series of her beautiful furniture in production, which helps to emphasize her ability to be present, innovative and current in her designs.
She is the designer behind the UMI series, and developed its prototypes in connection with Bergen Art and Design School’s exhibition in Green House during the Stockholm Furniture Light Fair in 2016. Since then, the series has grown and has now resulted in daybed, coffee table, stools and benches in both oak and wild ash.
