Done, cheers!

Elevate your fireside experience with our Telegraph Bench, expertly crafted from decommissioned timber power poles sourced throughout Australia. This robust piece is available in a blackened finish, showcasing the beauty of repurposed materials and embracing simplicity in design. Supported by two custom concrete blocks, cast from excess wet concrete salvaged from Brisbane building sites, the bench seamlessly combines two waste materials that would otherwise be destined for landfill.  

Versatile and durable, our Telegraph Bench is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, designed to adapt effortlessly to uneven or sloping terrain. Whether you're looking for comfortable seating for two or a low side table with vibe, this bench adds character and functionality to any environment. 

At any given time there are over 6 million telegraph poles in use across Australia. Every year 200,000 of these are replaced due to ‘ground line failure’ where a small section of the pole becomes waterlogged. The rest of the pole is reusable however 80% of these are currently scraped due to a lack of recycling incentive. Our telegraph poles are made from untreated species of hardwood sourced by our supplier Kennedy’s Timbers.
