Maggie's Cancer Centre


Maggie’s Centres are places of refuge where people affected by cancer can find emotional and practical support.  We worked with architects Foster + Partners to make furniture for both indoors and out, including the 3.4m oval kitchen table at the very heart of the building which provides a welcome place to gather and share a cup of tea.

Made from solid oak, the kitchen table has a rectilinear, organic hand drawn table top with softly curving edges. The elyptical legs are fixed with a through tenon joint that expresses the leg shape on the table top. The underside of the table is as beautiful as the top with careful selection of well-cured timber enabling us to dispense with a cumbersome under-rail.

For the greenhouse we made a moveable table with slate top and cast iron red oxide legs. With stainless steel wheels, it slides out of the space on rails ensuring it can be used all year round for therapeutic activities such as gardening classes and workshops. The accompanying cast iron stools have a circular solid oak seat with gently sloping edges.
