CATHEDRAL SQUARE, PETERBOROUGH
Factory Street Furniture
wooden, stainless steel
double-sided, with backrest
Factory Furniture, in association with LDA Design, created several pieces of unique urban furniture for Cathedral Square in Peterborough. The impressive feature seating drew inspiration from the architecture of the nearby cathedral. In keeping with the historic nature of the site we used traditional joinery techniques now rarely seen in street furniture. The seating was primarily manufactured from FSC® hardwood with stainless steel elements. The project demonstrated the commitment to quality and attention to detail that are trademarks of Factory Furniture’s work.
The Cathedral Square brief called for double and single-sided formats. The double-sided benches stood on their own, while the single-sided benches were linked together in a chain. They were designed to be hardwearing and removable without having to lift surrounding paving.
