i just saw this on dezeen and it really caught my eye. the set is by sam hecht, and called table, bench, chair. the frames are made of steam bent beech that look as if they pass through the solid surface. i really like the simplicity of them. from established & sons (via dezeen):

The idea to combine several seating opportunities and functions into a single product was initiated by a trip on the Tokyo metro by designer Sam Hecht. Here individual seating spaces are designated along a communal bench. Hecht used this principle as a starting point and has similarly differentiated various functional areas along the length of his bench with the help of traditional steam bent beech frames. These appear to slice through the solid wood bench that is the constant element in the design. Three versions of Table, Bench, Chair are available; a chair, bench and love seat. Designated seating space is profiled into the solid oak base.
