All the environments where people meet over food or a drink.
Settings can be as diverse as five-star restaurants, school canteens or staff areas with facilities to heat up a lunch box or sit down for a coffee.
They can also include traditional dining table seating or bar-style eating, as well as soft seating options such as sofas and easy chairs. Each of these settings comes with specific expectations and requires furniture, materials, colours and shapes for those expectations to be met. Here, we've brought together some of our range that works well in this context – although the boundaries are fluid and inspiration is not always found where expected. The products here are shown in standard versions but they can also be adapted to meet other requirements.
Our aim is to foster a good environment for the architect's own creativity. For example, by adjusting its height, a table that at first glance seems suited to a café can just as easily be used in a bar.
"Materials need to withstand a high degree of wear and tear, and customers often want to be able to use furniture to influence the acoustics."
Most food and drink venues outside the home have significant requirements in terms of quality, functionality and strength. Materials need to withstand a high degree of wear and tear, and customers often want to be able to use furniture to influence the acoustics in a space or provide in-built functions such as storage. Swedese’s furniture are designed to take this into account from the start, and there is also considerable potential for products to be customised for unique projects.
