The ‘Canteen’ range is a suite of contract furniture consisting of a bench, dining table, cafe table, stool and stackable chair produced for Camberwell College of Arts.
Over the past seven years, we have a built a reputation as a sustainable furniture practice by insisting on the highest quality workmanship while working with reclaimed materials. When we were awarded this commission we were clear from the start that sustainability would be at its core and this would be an opportunity to produce work that really exemplified our working practice. To this end, we used reclaimed and GIB timbers that were sourced locally. Working to the parameters set by the college, all reclaimed materials were sourced from within a 35-mile radius of the campus. This meant we could verify the provenance of all our timbers.
