Coal Drops Yard, Charred Oak Benches

Heatherwick studios, approached us to help with some bespoke, charred Oak seating for the newly redeveloped Coal Drops Yard.

The former Victorian warehouse has undergone a dramatic transformation from its past life.

This ambitious work has seen the buildings emerge as London’s newest retail and dining destination.

After some consultation, we commissioned to manufacture a range of charred Green Oak furniture.

In total, we were asked to manufacture 30 benches in a range of styles.

These huge Oak sections were then hand sculpted, charred and scrubbed into shape.

The final result is a family of furniture, that complements the restored brick and iron buildings beautifully.

The benches certainly offer a welcome place to sit and enjoy the transformed Coal Drops Yard.
