Wales & Wales: Benches
1992 | wood | Wren Landing and throughout Canary Wharf (exterior) | Art Map reference: 24
Husband and wife design team Wales & Wales have created many of the wooden benches that are found in Canary Wharf’s exterior and interior spaces. Their work is influenced by architecture, characterised here by the subtle sensitivity with which the benches relate to their surroundings.
Wales & Wales originally trained as cabinet makers, but they soon became more interested in the design process and the scale of their production increased. Their furniture can be seen world-wide.
