“Galleria is at heart a collage of textures and materials,” says PearsonLloyd co-founder Tom Lloyd, who explains the product was designed with the likes of architects Aldo Rossi and Carlo Scarpa in mind.

The product consists of a steel substructure running along the base of the system, onto which a series of crafted elements in simple shapes can be added; among them solid Ash benches, blocks of upholstered fabric and leather, and marble and steel table elements.

“With its simple overlay of the square and circle, colour, material and texture, there is a distinct architectural language to the piece, and we wanted to make something that could be built up by the buyer to fit a space,” says Lloyd, “be it a simple linear bench, an angular ten-seater for public spaces, or an upholstered island in a hotel, for guests to relax on. We’ve got no idea how many possible combinations there are.”
