Mall seating for Arndale Shopping Centre, Manchester

Public area seating and planters for shopping centre

Paul Case Furniture designed the bench and the modular concept which is the central part of the new seating at Manchester Arndale. This work came about from our close working relationship with BWD Ltd who then added the planters and the tree units and the final layouts. This work followed on from us creating their Reception area a few years before.

The design incorporated many features:

  • Modular
  • Durable
  • Easy clean
  • Fire Rated
  • No nooks and crannies for litter or bombs (!)
  • Quick replacement of damaged components – seat or backrest can be easily swapped by Arndale staff overnight if damage occurs

All in we delivered 13 benches and 14 planters in 4 separate locations around the shopping centre.
