Bend the rules

Alex MooreFor Sussex blacksmith and designer Alex Moore, the old wooden garden bench has seen its day. He has come up with this handmade tubular stainless-steel number, polished or powder-coated in a choice of colours, such as this fresh spring green. It’s an innovative, low-maintenance piece, only needing a quick wipe to every so often to keep it looking pristine, and its closely spaced struts offer support and a good deal of comfort.
