Bespoke furniture for college library

When you want to make the most of limited space in an office, lab or school, then a bespoke piece of furniture can make all the difference when you have odd or unusual shapes left.

This was the case for one of our customers on a project fitting out a new college library. The new library layout created some odd shaped spaces between bookshelves and they asked Chairplan to design and build special angled corner seating units that would fit between two bookcases but still show the upholstered outer backs.

They required 7 units in two completely different sizes, but with a consistent look and feel.

The images show the development of the corner units from the initial planning through to the production…



From the drawing board

We were provided with a basic line dimensions that gave us the footprints to work to.

As you can see, we quite literally went back to the drawing board, designing soft seating corner units that turned the ‘dead space’ in to great little nooks.

Following the creation of designs and templates by John, our production team led by foreman Leigh went about creating the 7 new units.

Delivered in just 7 working days

Due to the progress of the fit out, our client had an extremely tight deadline for the corner units. We were able to streamline the design and manufacturing process, producing and delivering the new furniture in just 7 working days.
