Artform Urban Furniture has provided a range of products, including Big Harris Benches illuminated with LED lighting, for the Redrock development in Stockport. Redrock is is a new leisure destination in the heart of the town centre. Anchored by a ten screen cinema, the scheme will comprise over 75,000 sq. ft. of leisure and retail floor space, together with a new 360 space multi-storey car park.
The Client required a range of products, including the MultipliCITY seats & benches, which were supplied and manufactured under licence in the UK by Artform Urban, the Big Harris Benches which were customised with LED illumination, and two bespoke sedum roof cycle shelters. Artform provided their expert knowledge for the design and installation of these individual products.
The customisation of the Big Harris Benches had to be reviewed and discussed with both the client and landscape architect, BDP, due to the exacting requirements of the lighting system that was incorporated. Prototypes were made to ensure specific technical details could be approved. A full consultation took place throughout the project.
Artform's products were chosen for their appearance and importantly their durability, a key factor throughout the scheme, due to the town centre location and to minimise repairs and replacements in the future. The MultipliCITY seating & benches have an anodised aluminium frame which provides the level of detail and strength that the client was identified at an early stage of the project. The distinctive and modern design of the seating, along with Artform’s extensive product knowledge made this a considered choice for the client.
