We were asked to design, supply, build and install a bespoke bench seat for a clients dining area.
The seat would need to be installed over the existing radiator and be primarily used for their children to sit at whilst eating at the dining table.
We consulted with our clients and they liked the idea of an ‘industrial’ themed design so we chose to use pipe and clamp. The combination of the iron clamps and steel pipe is very industrial but extremely functional and strong. They did not want any legs to clean around so we engineered the frame to be fully mounted to the brick wall and ‘float’ over the radiator. The bench seat itself was made using oak effect worktop and we lined both the wall under the seat and seat underside with reflective material to encourage heat convection away from the area.
The end result exceeded their expectations and does the job it was intended for with ease, style and wasn’t as expensive as you might think!
