    The bench is handmade in fiberglass by kundalini. It's in their Hara line along with a lounge chair.

Photos by MetropolisWine Cellar of the DayWhat happens here: On one side, an accent wall creates a stunning focal point from the front door; on the other, wine is displayed and kept chilled. Location: Ottawa, Ontario, CanadaSize: 36 square feet (3.3 square meters); 9 by 4 feetDesigner: Friedemann Weinhardt of Design First InteriorsThe homeowners are a tech executive and his family, who bought the transitional-style home because of its stunning waterfront location. Before moving in, they renovated it to suit their taste for modern minimalism and to provide the appropriate walls, lighting and spaces for their art collection. “The house lent itself well to the modern open concept,” says designer Friedemann Weinhardt, founder of Design First Interiors. However, the wide-open floor plan was a little too open. When guests walked in the front door, they could see all the way to the other side of the house. To give guests a place to pause at the entry, Weinhardt designed an accent wall that serves as a focal point. “It breaks up the space without closing off and separating the foyer,” he says. The new wall is a great spot to hang a painting and provides a backdrop for a sculptural bench. Entryway seating is a necessity for sitting and pulling off boots in Ottawa’s snowy climate.
