The bench takes inspiration from the majestic natural rock formations of the Giant's Causeway, which reflects the enduring and established nature of the City of London in its ability to withstand the test of time. The rugged symmetry allows for an infinite combination of components to suit the needs of the space and draw people in exploring the tessellated landscapes created. Its recycled plastic terrazzo offers a softer yet durable contrast to the glass, concrete and steel of the city.
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.
