Storyteller Bench

Project type

Product design



The “Storyteller” bench was commissioned by Sir Phil Redmond as a one off to celebrate Liverpool's success as Capital of Culture 2008. The finished article provides somewhere to sit, to remember and to create new memories and culture. I worked through a total of four iterations over a number of years to ensure that the finished article was fit for purpose, well engineered and memorable fully reflecting the legacy of 2008. The design uses elements of the capital of culture 08 logo to create recesses within which people will sit, so that they may be literally immersed in the cities culture as the stories of the people and the place surround them in print. the story was water jet cut out of stainless steel and is taken from sections of "The Liverpool Saga" written by local poet Roger Mc Gough. An 800 line poem contributed to by people from across Merseyside in honour of Liverpool's 800th birthday.
