The Norfolk benches of Wales & Wales have been assigned to the new seafront regeneration project called "Next Wave" of the Bexhill-on-Sea on the southeast coast of East Sussex. Skillfully designed for the contract furniture industry - and manufactured right in the UK by CS Contract Furniture - the benches are modern in appearance and completely functional.
The Norfolk Bench. Designed by Wales & Wales for CS Contract Furniture.
The modular benches will be used jointly with two or three in groups together, as well as in their original state as a solid singular bench with an arm rest. According to the CS Furniture website, "the project seeks to reconnect the town center with its seafront promenade, incorporating an improvement to the public realm quality of the promenade and the landscape setting of the iconic De La Warr Pavilion."
Although the Next Wave project is going to be made with luscious strips of Iroko wood, other timber options are also available. Aluminum or powder-coated stainless steel componentry with a textured silver finish compliments the warm wood and keeps it looking new as they survive the great outdoors. You can opt for a full bench with or without arms, backless, or a wall top bench. Additionally, the table arms can come straight or curved with or without wooden capping.
Wales & Wales is a company with thirty years of experience designing exclusively in wood. Their work has been featured in national collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Crafts Council, among others. Meanwhile, the Norfolk bench manufacturer, CS Contract Furniture, creates their products from start to finish on-site. This includes their timber cutting, machinery, assembly and finishing with the highest level of quality.
