We recently developed with Race the bespoke bench and tip-up seating for Bury St Edmunds’ new Apex Auditorium. The comfort, form and construction of the furniture had to complement the crafted Auditorium interior, These elements all of equal importance were developed over a number of productive sessions.
With Race we were able to test and optimise comfort with the direct input of our client at dedicated Council meetings, and together we found a real synergy in developing the details of how the oak, steel and leather elements of these seats should be put together. The process was hugely rewarding and the quality of the seating contributes invaluably to the overall look and feel of the Auditorium.

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
