Benchmark was contacted by the Olsson Group, Omaha, USA to help provide some bespoke cantilever benches to this inspiring medical centre project.
The new greenspace at the medical centre features 18 ceramic columnar sculptures created by Omaha artist Jun Kaneko. The sculptures are incorporated into a grove of mature trees.
Benchmark's modified CL005/CL007 benches line the walk and provide visitors, medical centre employees and students the opportunity to seek calm and beauty amid a tranquil park-like setting.
The specification was to incorporate subtle lighting that would down-light the space. This required modifying the standard CL007 curved bench to include a radius piece of stainless steel to hide the LEDs.
This modification also required Benchmark to adapt the cantilever wall mounting to allow the strip lighting to pass freely along the whole length of the bench.
