This bench, manufactured in Israel by the
Oneg furniture company, is a dual-purpose
item - a bench and a ladder. When not in
use, its legs fold inward and it lies almost
flat. The bench is made of solid pine wood.

Oneg was an Israeli factory for the production of furniture, working in southern Tel Aviv from the beginning of the 1950's. The company manufactured simple and durable furniture. In the beginning, it specialized in folding furniture made of wood and then from aluminum. Later the company began to produce office and institutional furniture. With the years, furniture items made by Oneg became icons of Israeli furniture.
