From Ian McChesney
We were recently commissioned by King’s Cross General Partnership to design eight large benches in Granary Square one of London’s newest public spaces, and one of the largest of its kind in Europe. Design: Ian McChesney Carved in Cornish granite each will be 8m long by 1.2m deep and will weigh around 4 tonnes. The benches will be arranged in a formal arrangement of facing pairs around four existing fountain pools. The aesthetic of the benches borrows from the eroded quality of naturally occurring granite boulders resulting in smooth, curvaceous and comfortable forms.
