The Solution

Lou Gomm’s design took the form of twin face-to-face booths utilising straight run banquettes. The desired position presented a problem, however, as it would block access to an important valve in the water pipework system.

The solution was to make the seat of one of the units removable, enabling access when necessary, the unsightly valve and pipework concealed by the seating’s elegant oak veneered capping and plinths so you wouldn’t even know it was there…

…the polished oak veneer lending a stylish touch to the seating backs and complementing the parquet flooring.

Results

Lou Gomm’s designs for Cohaesus’ office seating makes simplicity stylish. As an aside, for its London HQ the company selected The Space, an office provider whose watchwords are sustainability and environmental awareness. It is perhaps fitting then that the seating uses an Ecolabel certified fabric that is 100% renewable and compostable – when the times comes….Craftwood’s wide ranging experience means we are able to advise on fabric suitability and durability for any given application.

“Craftwood provide a very professional service, nothing is too much trouble for this team. They really helped me on the Coheasus Office project, we had a tight deadline and a tricky area to install the banquette seating. A site visit was arranged so quickly and once production drawings were signed off they worked very hard to ensure we could meet the project deadline. The banquette seating is fantastic quality, so comfortable and they colour matched the veneer panelling to the floor beautifully. I cannot recommend working with Craftwood highly enough.”
