Simply seated

PearsonLloyd has designed a modular seating system that brings a modern touch to any public space.

Public spaces are now made modern and reveal a pop of colour, thanks to PearsonLloyd’s Galleria modular seating system.

Following the success of PearsonLloyd’s best-selling Polar public seating range for Tacchini, the British studio has extended their partnership with the renowned Italian furniture brand to design Galleria.

The modular seating system comprises a steel bar, running along the base of the system, onto which a series of beautifully crafted elements in simple shapes and materials can be added. These can include wooden slabs, blocks of upholstered fabrics and leather, and solid marble discs. The result is a logical but abstract composition of textures and materials; not a surprise considering it was designed taking inspiration from Italian Neo-rationalist architect Aldo Rossi’s work.

The system has a distinct architectural language, and enables the buyer to custom design the product for a particular space.

It’s a simple linear bench, an angular ten-seater for public spaces, or an upholstered island in a hotel, for guests to relax on, says one half of PearsonLloyd, Luke Pearson

While each design element is hand crafted, the piece is designed to travel flat packed and assembled on location.
