Ace Hotel in London wanted to furnish its premises with local, handcrafted pieces and this led to them visiting Benchmark's workshops. Impressed by the company's passion, facilities and sustainable philosophy, the hotel commissioned over 50 pieces of bespoke furniture for locating throughout the hotel.
A huge 6.4m solid oak communal table was made for the lobby. Inspired by library tables, it was split down the middle by a full length light. Powerpoints running along the length of the table enable the space to be used as a drop-in office hub.
Bespoke banquettes with built-in custom lighting, restaurant tables, meeting tables, maîtres de stations and a particularly large 5.7m waiter station made from stained iroko with beautiful finger jointing detail were produced for the hotel's Holloi Polloi restaurant.
