The urban furniture pieces have been designed based on a series of ‘Apt’ shapes, which form part of our brand language, and link back to our neighbours through their material selection and function. Functions are flexible and the pieces can be used as bar tables, chess/games boards and relaxed seating. The top faces of each object will be inlaid with different sustainable and locally sourced materials.
The theme of ‘care’ also informed our material selection. Caring for the planet is equally important to us as is caring for our community. We tried to source materials from local vendors who either have a sustainable approach or use recycled materials. Vegan leather from Panaz’s
sustainable line – has been used to upholster the chairs that are designed to pair with the chess table, while the recycled plastic you see on the slide is by smile plastics
- a company located right next to Waterloo station who manufacture hand-crafted panels from waste materials. The tiles were donated from Solus Ceramics
as well as some further materials from Schluter.
