The University of Bristol's new Colston Street accommodation opened in November 2017 and provides self catered accommodation for over 100 students in the heart of Bristol City Centre and just a 15 minute walk from the University Campus.
As an approved furniture supplier to the University of Bristol we worked with Oxford Architects and the client to specify suitable ranges of furniture for social spaces, dining areas and study bedrooms.
To create attractive and comfortable social environments ranges were chosen from a selection of manufacturers such as Vitra Coconut and Tabouret Haut stools, Hay Can sofas, Orangebox Sully stools, James Burleigh Waldo 45 tables & benches and Deadgood Love chairs.
Within the study bedrooms we supplied Diffrient World task chairs from Humanscale which feature an innovative tri-panel mesh backrest that provides custom back and lumbar support and a lightweight design. This attractive design eliminates the need for traditional mechanisms, instead using the laws of physics and the sitter’s body weight to offer perfect recline for each individual sitter. Diffrient World offers the ultimate user-friendly sitting experience.
