Magnus Long’s hm106 Quiet collection of exquisitely proportioned benches and sofas, have a looping angular under-frame supporting an upholstered seat, cantilevered at both ends. Available in three lengths and two depths, the deeper pieces have an option for a low backrest. The frame is available in solid oak or light grey powder coated steel, and the collection can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics, vinyls and leathers. Multi-tone upholstery is available – seats and backs can be specified in different fabrics or leathers. The collection includes three tables; a high table for laptops, and two low side and coffee tables with black Valchromat tops.
‘The original idea for the cantilevered, linear Quiet bench came from watching how people mark-out zones for themselves on benches with their bags or books. It’s an obvious observation but it is interesting to see how people use large flat seating spaces, especially from above where you can look down and see the different ‘territory’ marked out.’ – Magnus Long
