Centerline CL011 seat
Wahaca is a modern market-style eatery in Bristol where Benchmark's versatile curved Centerline CL011 seat has been used.
Specified by Softroom Architects in Soho, Benchmark was asked to produce a large curved seat for this Mexican restaurant that was due to open. Wahaca is a growing ‘market eating’ style restaurant known for its indoor street food vibe and creative, individually designed interior.
With this in mind, Benchmark re-worked the Centerline CL011 seat to give a fresh industrial feel by manufacturing it in mild steel, which was then shot blasted and given a clear lacquer to produce a subtle shimmer to the finish. Bespoke cushions were then added to provide comfort for diners.
A backdrop of up-lit palms and a huge mural by graffiti artist Will Barras completes a vibrant space in which to enjoy salsa, tequila and, of course, the atmosphere that Wahaca is known for.
The CL011 seat can be made in any length and curved to any radius. As well as mild steel it can also be manufactured in 316 stainless steel or can be powder-coated to any RAL colour with armrests set at any interval.
