Factory Furniture were approached to create a range of benches for the high street in Winchester. They were manufactured from FSC® Oak timber and powder coated stainless steel. Among the seating’s distinctive design features were two removable end panels which could be replaced with glass plates, decorated by local artists, at a future date. The benches and seats (with back and arm rests) incorporated a specially designed shallow mount anchor system to minimise the disturbance to street services and also allowed for removal of the seat, if necessary, without the destructive removal of paving. The base design also allowed for height adjustment on site for levelling purposes due to the steeply sloping high street.
