I have been meaning to contact you to say how great the lecture seats look and how well they have been received. I am amongst others who gave a short talk in the space last week and the audience were very comfortably seated! We do appreciate the effort that you and your team – especially Warren and the upholsterers put in. Please relay our thanks and appreciation.

The seats look amazing, thank you both (and the Race team) for all the time and effort that went into understanding what the architect wanted and then making it a reality – definitely worth all the hard work! Hopefully we will get to work together again in the future

2010 has been a memorable year for collaboration between Luke Hughes and Company, and Race Ltd – both working together with world-class architects, fitting out out world-class buildings. Three projects that have been especially notable include: the TS Eliot Theatre at Merton College Oxford (with Ridge), the Cattle Market Theatre in Bury St Edmunds (with Hopkins Architects) and the Sainsbury Botanic Institute in Cambridge (with Stanton Williams). There has been an array of design details, site logistics and the coordination of materials and finishes that have required sensitivity and commitment. It has been a pleasure to work alongside a kindred specialist company with such similar values

The Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh is another succesful installation using our prestbury seating range in a curved layout and upholstered in a high quality leather.
The project is reported to be the fastest fit out undertaken in Europe.The only way to ensure the job was delivered on time and to the right standard was to employ the right trade contractors. Como contracted Race Furniture to carry out the installation of their luxurious 220 seat auditorium. This challenging commission, required an unprecedented quality of finish and all of our expertise in using the finest quality ‘spinnibeck’ leather.
It was completed to the bank’s approval and has contributed to the building being considered to be
one of the key landmark buildings in the City.
