Lobby Furniture & Fittings

Photography Ellie Laycock

Year 2012


Directly inspired by the immaculate period detailing and design collection at the Picker House, their specially commissioned work for the Stanley Picker Gallery Lobby includes a contemporary dado-rail with bespoke fittings, they refer to as ‘parasites’, that Gallery staff and visitors can quickly adapt to suit their need. Resourcefully upgrading existing Gallery furniture and sourcing vintage pieces such as Frederick Scott’s Supporto Chair (c.1976), the duo have also created a suite of versatile yet elegant new furniture in powder-coated metal and laminated wood, including a reception desk, a split-circular table, and a stacking-stool named Stanley in tribute to the Gallery’s very own patron.
