Zombie Bench lives on!

Buried amongst the brambles, weeds and ant nests, a spooky discovery has been made on an East London development site…
And it goes by the name of ZOMBIE BENCH!
Nearly five years after George King installed his Zombie Bench as part of the London Pleasure Grounds event, GKA have been to the Silvertown development site in Newham to see how the bench has fared. Remarkably, the sturdy concrete structure has survived almost entirely intact, looking all the more surreal abandoned on the apocalyptic site!
We are now searching for a new home for the bench, somewhere a little more accessible, where Zombie Bench can delight, scare and amuse the public once again!


Zombie Bench among best designed benches

We were very pleased to discover that our super spooky Zombie Bench, designed by George King in 2012 for the RIBA’s Pews and Perches competition has been named as the #2 Best Designed Bench in the World by design site Design Curial.
The bench is made from 70 pre-fabricated concrete arms cast from a real human arm. Follow the link below to have a look at the other contenders which include designs by Gaudi, Thomas Heatherwick and Mies Van Der Rohe.
