The Biophilic Hallway Bench
In my final year of Furniture: Design and Make at Rycotewood Furniture Centre I designed and made this hallway bench. The company 'William Hands' set the "Design for wellbeing" brief and worked with us through the design stage of the project.
I decided I wanted to create a mindful moment in a domestic setting, to encourage people to pause and have a moment to leave work outside and not bring it into home life. The bench allows people to sit and take their shoes off. While the biophilic element helps users to relax. I chose to glaze the plant pot that I made in a similar shade of blue to the upholstery to bring coherence to bench.
William Hands vision is to communicate the brand ambitions of our clients in the furniture environments we create.
Our mission is to engage and educate our market place through open and honest communication. We will always push our design and manufacturing skills. We make sure that we know our customers needs and what we can do to make their experience a great one.
