Franklin Park Mall

A Modular Seating Solution

Flexible and durable furniture pieces topped the list of project must haves. The issue was, the market lacked a furniture system that could be configured in a variety of ways and still be robust enough for a mall environment. While it’s often presumed that custom automatically translates to a large price tag, however, we designed a custom furniture piece – contracting a furniture manufacturer to build and deliver the piece – within budget and a short timeframe. This seating solution is now a part of the furniture company’s running line.
