Orchard Benches. Bridge Farm Primary School, Hengrove Bristol. 2014
A sequence of bespoke benches clustered around apple trees in Bridge Farm Primary School's playing fields with a stepping stone path. These low and wide benches have been designed for sitting on and at like a table, jumping on and off, and to encourage more intimate and conversational group play. One part of a series of design interventions across Hengrove for the public art commission Future Perfect. Curated by Theresa Bergne and Jes Fernie.
Future Perfect is commissioned by Bristol City Council and is the first public art programme to be funded through a Neighbourhood Partnership in which governance is extended to members of the Hengrove community.
