Installations at St Pauls Cathedral

I have been working with designer Harry Dobbs to make 5 new furniture installations destined to sit on a few of the existing granite plinths in the gardens of St Pauls Cathedral.  This is a temporary project, the pieces are expected to be in place for about 6 months in which time the public response will be assessed.

Accoya wood was selected for the project; this is a relatively new product, a modified timber made using sustainable soft wood that has undergone an acetylation process to “create a high performance wood whose properties match or exceeds those of  the best tropical hardwoods.”  Whilst this timber is proving resistant to environmental influences it is apparently less resistant to the wear and tear of public usage – the acetylation process does not harden the wood.
