The designer of the Endless Book Club exhibition at Tate Modern in London turned to Forterra to create something unique and unusual for their seating arrangements.
Endless Book Club would see reading enthusiasts from notable book clubs sit on the brick benches and stools while discussing their chosen books, in the Turbine Hall of the famous art gallery.
Forterra’s Cradley Heath facility provided over 500 special shaped bricks to create more than 20 seats as part of the exhibition. Cradley Special Brick has provided millions of non-standard bricks for refurbishments of listed buildings, luxury newbuilds and one-off projects including schools and leisure centres.
Forterra have made more than 7,000 different bespoke bricks over the years for clients across the UK and as far away as Saudi Arabia and Scandinavia.
Book clubs from the Royal College of Art and the Institute of Psychoanalysis took part in the event, which was produced by Self Publish, Be Happy.
Bruno Ceschel, Director of Self Publish, said, “The brick seats are visually very striking, and we’re thrilled with the results.”
