One From the Archives: Southern Cross Garden Bar

Here's an oldie but a goodie - five years ago we carried out some work for the then new Southern Cross Garden Bar in Wellington.

Working with the overall design aesthetic implemented by John Mills Architects, we commissioned these neat 'Jenga' style stools out of macrocarpa, and had the Southern Cross logo laser cut into the top surface. They double as handy side tables too!

After rescuing around 50 1960's wire frame chairs from an old church in the Hutt Valley, we powder-coated and restored them all, then set about sewing up new covers for them using fabric from the Unique 'Outside In' fabric collection. They have become a great example of robust and functional but very quirky and easily movable seating, perfect for a sociable venue like The Cross!
