ESTABLISHED & SONS DRIFT BENCH DESIGN BY 
AMANDA LEVETE ARCHITECTS




ESTABLISHED & SONS DRIFT CONCRETE BENCH DESIGN BY AMANDA LEVETE
The idea of drifting a line backwards initiated the design for the Drift benchThe naturally formed fluid lines of that found object
provided inspiration for Amanda Levete’s exercises in complex curves, angles and subtracted spaces. The Drift bench is an extremely sculptural design whose function, as a seating
object, is clear although the primary concern for Levete has been translating her organic, highly sensual architectural language into a condensed form. This cast concrete version of the bench is suitable for permanent outdoor use.
Dimensions: L2880mm x D870mm x H420mm, seat depth 420mm
Notes Suitable for permanent outdoor use, crated weight 400kg, incrated weight 325kg
Materials: Cement and crushed white limestone with sealer
Colour Natural

AMANDA LEVETE
Amanda Levete has spent her career exploring the transformative potential of space through buildings and furniture pieces. Research underpins her work and she is intellectually driven by the challenge to find the idea that will unlock the potential in everything she designs. She works with diametrically opposed elements, the organic and the man-made, to create the unexpected and is recognised for her ability to bring visionary projects to fruition realising the ambitions of private and public sector clients.
Levete has received a number of international commissions, including a new gallery, courtyard and entrance for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, a 1.5 million square foot luxury shopping mall and 6-star hotel in Bangkok already on site, and a cultural centre in Lisbon commissioned by EDP. She has forged long-term relationships with artists resulting in a joint project with Anish Kapoor for the Naples Subway. Her individual furniture pieces for Established & Sons have been called sublime, pushing materials and design to their limits. Through this relationship she has produced a number of defining pieces including Drift bench and the Around the Corner collection—each carved into a form by an advanced software program and then worked by hand.
Levete is a trustee of Artangel, the Young Foundation and the Arts Foundation. She is a regular TV and radio broadcaster and writes for a number of magazines. She trained at the Architectural Association and worked for Richard Rogers before joining Future Systems as a partner in 1989.
The formation of AL_A in 2009 realised Levete’s ambition to create a collaborative office following her partnership with the late Jan Kaplický at Future Systems where she completed award-winning and internationally recognised buildings including Selfridges department store in Birmingham and the Media Centre at Lord’s cricket ground which won the prestigious Stirling Prize.
