Featured above: the HM83 designed by Simon Pengelly

An exciting new concept for public seating, used at both Portadown Health & Care Centre and Barrhead Health & Care Centre, the HM83 bench can be used as a dramatic stand-alone feature or linked together to form molecular, geometric arrangements. Constructed in pre-formed plywood on a stainless steel under-frame and upholstered CMHR foams, hm83 is built to withstand severe contract use.

Additional accessories are available to expand its versatility: a chrome bumper bar can be fitted to protect against damage from luggage and trolleys, while a metal under plate can be fitted to prevent concealment of terrorist devices.

About the designer:
