How They Made Tudor Arcade’s New 10 Metre Bench (Video)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

As part of the major renovation work taking place in the Tudor Arcade, the team at Simon Thomas Pirie Furniture have created a unique handmade bench that will be fitted into place in the arcade in 3 weeks time, outside Waitrose and Fat Face.

The first thing that makes it unusual is its size  – the bench is 10 metres long, and will comfortably seat at least 20 people. But what really makes it special is that it has been created in the shape of a question mark, which involved steam-bending the wood and pressing it into shape.
