LDA Design appointed Factory Furniture to create some truly eye-catching curved timber seating to go into Leys Square in Letchworth Garden City. Our design employed FSC® timber seat and backrest slats mounted onto a cast aluminium frame. The seats also had four cast aluminium armrests. Designing and manufacturing the sculpted frame was technically demanding. But we welcomed the chance to, once again, demonstrate Factory Furniture’s commitment to fulfilling our design brief. The frame was cast in six parts which were welded together and painted. Finally the timber seat and backrest slats were added along with the armrests. The seats were installed at the Leys Square site with below ground fixings allowing the seat frame to seemingly ‘grow’ out of the paved stone surface.
