Named after a good friend of the designer, the Rutherford bench is one of the original designs from when the company was first founded and still is one of our most celebrated. We wanted this version to take into consideration some of the feedback we received. The goal was to get the most optimal comfort for a specific demographic: our senior citizens. Many of the modifications were driven by this group’s needs and comments. The seat height was raised, the angle of the backrest adjusted, and the height of the armrest tweaked to make this bench extremely comfortable and user friendly. This was the first bench that employed an all-aluminum frame as opposed to steel, making it more affordable and rust-proof. The armrest and seatback have been designed to discourage our skateboarding friends from using them as a rail to grind. Ideally suited for many scenarios ranging from parks to playgrounds, the Rutherford truly shines as a dedication or memorial bench.
