LOCATION / Sir John Cass faculty of art, architecture and design, Aldgate East, London UK
TYPE / Furniture installation in a shared space
To design a piece of architecturally influenced furniture to inhabit the Boulevard space, this space is neither a corridor or a classroom. It is a transitional space that is designed to act as a reflection of an external boulevard.
The aim was to have as sustainable design as possible. All of the timber for the furniture was reclaimed beech from disused silversmith benches in a nearby building, thus allowing it to be moved manually and without additional cost.
Each individual in the studio began by designing a proposal, six of the designs were chosen for design development. The studio was divided into two groups of approximately ten people each working on their combined furniture design.
The two designs were named the ‘Tower’ and the ‘Loggia’. As part of the Loggia group I worked on various tasks from the initial concept through to the installation on site.
