Goose Foot worked with Freshwest Design to produce 10 seats and benches for the Colwyn Bay promenade.
The Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project combines the renewal of coastal defences with regeneration improvements to the promenade, creating a modern, sustainable and attractive waterfront. A key element of the project is the idea of circular movement – to encourage people using obvious road and pedestrian signs to travel along the promenade, up to the town centre and up to Old Colwyn near Parc Eirias.
The seat frames were laser-cut and fabricated at Goose Foot's factory in Darwen, UK, using 316 marine grade stainless steel and kebony syp timbers. The final fabrication, assembly and installation was undertaken by Freshwest Design. These bespoke seats were specifically designed to stop people in their tracks and provoke discussion from the general public.
Graham Wood, General Manager for Goose Foot said: “We were honoured to be asked by Freshwest Design to take part in this iconic project. Colwyn Bay has changed significantly over the last 18 months and we hope that these seats will be an asset to the local community and an attraction for visitors on the promenade.”
