|:||Local Collective’s seating uses London’s clay – completed as part of London Festival of Architecture 2020 at London Bridge train station; a natural material found beneath Londoner’s feet – to offer a social furniture that is breathable and sustainable. The bench’s modular system offers different compositions tailored to different social needs, whilst the materiality of clay improves indoor air quality by absorbing humidity and toxins. More importantly, this is an installation about climate change: to re-think and rationalise centuries-old construction principles and natural materials into sustainable, contemporary building techniques.|
