The bench holds in its folded shape the memory and much-loved comforts of home furniture. Reminiscent of your comfy sofa where you cuddled up with a beloved dog, or birthday parties in the dining room, or even the naughty step. Finished in classic Nora® studded rubber on a plywood frame, the bright yellow bench has something for everyone, poetically and ergonomically. We imagine this linear public place getting longer and longer, extending down the pavement and all around the city. Lighting Design done by Inessa Demidova
This bench is one of ten new benches across the City of London - five in Cheapside and five in the Eastern Cluster - and result of a design competition organised by the London Festival of Architecture, the City of London Corporation and Cheapside Business Alliance in 2018. They showcase London’s brilliant emerging architects and designers, and are a public gift that help the City remain an exceptional place to live, work and visit.
