Entré Malmö

The architects required seating for a busy public space that would be ‘simple, eye-catching, contemporary and comfortable’. They chose Paxa benches for the space as the contemporary style and materials suited the space. Some benches were made in oak and the others were fitted with with custom-made leather seats. Benches positioned in the centre were joined together by unique end supports that places them at 22.5° angles to each other. The overall result is a serpentine shape that reflects the flow of human traffic through the space.
