Client: Wandsworth Council


Wandsworth Council was seeking an artist to animate a bench
situated on Bedford Hill, Balham, London, United Kingdom.

The aim of the commission was to bring to life the existing wooden composite seating, creating something which is both functional, artistically interesting and engaging. Designs had to be original alternatives to traditional public street benches and which
complement our Arts and Culture Place-shaping goal to:

“Ensure arts and culture is integrally linked to the development of different parts of the Borough supporting the Area Strategies set out in the Local Plan and contributing to the improvement of the Boroughs neighbourhoods, high streets and regeneration areas ensuringarts and culture are accessible to all, grow the ambition of the Borough and reflect the needs and opportunities of the residents and creative clusters”.
