Banca Familiar is an outdoor furniture unit designed for bird lovers. Designed by Spanish designer Valentin Garal for Mexican company Le Porc-Shop, the Banca Familiar is an outdoor bench cum bird cage. In designer’s words, “Banca Familiar (Family Bench) is a design produced by the Mexican company Le Porc-Shop. Banca familiar is an object conceived for the “no places” often forgotten and lacking of character.
It is made of solid willow wood, with an outstanding crafted work on the cage. Its construction moves to a concept of excellence for the social and sentimental scope. Pedagogical in its design, functions as a bank of family ties. It requires a tender care by all members that surround the Family Bench. With a touch of irony, is a reflective piece destined to become a point of meeting, discussion and preservation of social relations.”
