"Our hands - it's what we use, and it's where we excel."
Factory Furniture was established in 1989. Our earliest projects were one-off bespoke pieces until in 1991, & with Crafts Council recognition, we launched the Serpentine bench at the New York ICFF.
And that’s where it started – we became exterior furniture manufacturers. We refined our furniture. The constant paring down of our designs led to the mantra we follow to this day – ‘simplicity of form and honesty of material’.
Today, we draw on our pragmatic approach to produce products of consistent high quality and with rigorous attention to detail. Our public furniture is still hand-made by our experienced, UK based, design and manufacturing team, selecting the best materials for each product.
After 27 years of experience Factory Furniture has the necessary insight into the challenging demands of public spaces and the needs of the people who use them. This makes us a valuable partner for all kinds of projects, no matter how big or small.
Our furniture is designed to endure and appeal – just as when we first created the Serpentine seat. We design and make street furniture and we enjoy it!
