Dinner for 8 with Michaelis Boyd
Benchmark has been working on a collection of furniture for Michaelis Boyd Studio. Dinner for 8, a small collection inspired by the traditional English dining room, was announced during the Fuorisalone Milan design week.
It’s a very new initiative for Michaelis Boyd. Whilst they’ve been creating residential and restaurant projects for years including Byron’s Restaurants and Soho House, this simple, elegant and striking collection of a table, a chair and a light is their first foray into designing and producing their own collection.
Michaelis Boyd came to Benchmark after working with us previously on Byron’s and Sophie’s Steakhouse. We helped them refine and engineer the designs and introduced new materials and manufacturing techniques… all in a very tight timescale! The chairs are made from tubular mild steel with felt upholstery. The table has a rigid ply structure and tubular mild steel legs.
