Benchmark was commissioned to provide dining tables and a bar for the Ashmolean Dining Room.

The two 3.5m long sharing tables, with their solid oak tops, dominate the dining space. The timber has been fumed by exposing it to ammonia which reacts with the tanins in the wood to darken it and bring out the grain pattern.

The tables have distinctive leg detailing and bespoke 6m fabric upholstered banquettes with loose cushions to provide a a sofa effect.

The fumed oak of the tables is echoed in the design of the bar with its fumed solid oak top. This contrasts with the bar's ship-lapped, dull polished zinc front.
