For the latest opening of the high-end fitness and wellbeing club, the KXU studios in London’s Sloane Square are robust, urban and tough, with the emphasis on creating an environment for an intense workout.
Designed by architects Stiff + Trevillion, with interior design by Peter Mikic, the aesthetic uses natural concrete, exposed brickwork and blackened steel. To complement these details, BAS were asked to create a hand-stitched L-shaped café bench with perforated back panels in a tan shoulder leather, alongside black leather handrails and studio door handles, clad in a tennis-wrap style.
With design collaboration from the architect’s team, we also produced a bespoke bench for the client’s spa, with a solid brass frame and perforated central back panel in a vegetable-tanned ‘Avocado’ green leather.
