twentytwentyone Contracts is proud to have been involved with the furniture specification and supply for the new Switch House extension to Tate Modern.

The furniture sourced and provided includes the Botan bench, designed by Jasper Morrison for Maruni.

Working closely with Jasper Morrison’s studio, the Botan benches manufactured by Maruni were adapted to bespoke dimensions, finishes and configurations to suit the public and gallery areas in the Herzog de Meuron building.

The standard version of the Jasper Morrison design is available in cedar or pine, with or without back  and in two sizes. For the Tate Modern prototypes were made in Japan for extended lengths and twin depth, with or without backs. They are were also produced in oak and with a black stain to marry with the materials specified for the building.

twentytwentyone also supplied furniture to the Patrons room, Members room and staff areas. The diverse mix of classic and contemporary designs, included designs produced by Nikari, Hay, Another Country and Fritz Hansen.
