Churchill College, Cambridge


Luke Hughes were commissioned by Churchill College, Cambridge, to design and craft 400 new chairs for their iconic, Richard Shephard designed, Grade II listed dining hall.

After 50 years, the chairs had finally come to their end of their natural, economic life - not least because of the modern presssures on Cambridge colleges of the conference trade, which greatly increases the ‘churn’ on furniture during college vacations. The college have remained extremely loyal the original vision for the buidlings, retaining the synthesis of the architecture with its furnishings.
