The newly redesigned SFMOMA prominently features Studio Brovhn’s Planar collection in the form of 80 indoor wooden gallery benches, 13 outdoor metal benches, and 2 custom ticketing stations. Working closely with the architectural team responsible for the public spaces Studio Brovhn customized the various Planar products to complement the architectural settings, and to meet the specific needs of the Museum.
NVIDIA Endeavor is a new headquarters building in Santa Clara, CA designed by global architecture firm Gensler. The two-storey facility spans about 500,000 square feet and accommodates 2,500 employees. The building is triangular shaped, and at each point there are two large-scale groupings of Planar metal benches. Planar wood benches are featured in conference rooms for extra seating.
Planar metal benches at NVIDIA Endeavor were highly customized for the unique, angular nature of the spaces and for ease of installation. The benches function as seating, and as a barrier to the angled building columns positioned at each end of the bench layouts. The Planar metal benches match the colour of the sculptural metal ceiling forms above for an overall complementary aesthetic.

The lower block is stained natural.
