Having previously supplied the University of Nottingham with a number of 316 stainless steel picnic tables and stools, Benchmark was asked to create a new design for the bar stools in the renovated terraced area at Mooch Bar.
Collaborating with an interior designer at CPMG Architects, Benchmark came up with a number of designs, including a timber and galvanised steel version, as well as a powder-coated mild steel option.
In the end, to co-ordinate with the rest of the sites around campus, a straight up stainless steel bar stool with a perforated top was decided upon. The addition of a laser-cut footrest and strengthened fixing plates gave the stools an industrial and robust look.
All Benchmark products are made to order, and the company can quickly and efficiently design and cost up individual projects. This allows the architect or designer the freedom to create interesting and unique items of external furniture without the bespoke cost.
