’Please be Seated’ by Paul Cocksedge at 2019’s London Design Festival

’Please be Seated’ by Paul Cocksedge was a part of the 2019’s London Design Festival at the Finsbury Avenue Square of Broadgate neighborhood. Ribbons of steel and wood are: “walking the line between a craft object and a design solution. It occupies the square without blocking it,” says Cocksedge. Created in concentric circles in an undulating fashion, a sculpture intended for socialization, resting and adorning the square for those passing by. Cocksedge made a collaboration with White & White to create a massive scaffolding wood installation. Cocksedge founded his studio by the same name in 2004 with his business partner Joana Pinho. Their philosophy was always: “The key feature of the Studio’s work, in everything from product design to architectural projects, is a focus on simplicity and imagination in order to create unique people-centered designs.”
