Furniture Fusion’s Nene Chair settles easily into any environment, but a couple of notable recent projects for the UK’s leading contract furniture supplier have shown that it’s a perfect choice for a creative space.
Two very different settings chose the Nene Chair as part of projects recently completed by Furniture Fusion – the South London Gallery, and St George’s Bristol.

St George’s Bristol is a music and entertainment venue, housed in a beautiful 19th Century church. As part of a Heritage Lottery Fund project to restore and extend the building, Furniture Fusion was approached to supply pieces for use within a beautiful double-height extension.
The sleek glass extension features an exposed stone wall, part of the original building designed by the architect of the British Museum, so it was crucial that the furniture could sit comfortably in both heritage and contemporary spaces.
Similarly The South London Gallery has undergone recent expansion, and required seating for use in the gallery – home to work by established and lesser-known contemporary artists. The Nene Chair sits beautifully in the calm, still space – allowing visitors to focus on the art and installations within.
What links both sites is their creative focus – something that’s a real inspiration for Furniture Fusion and has informed the way in which the firm approaches its work.
Sam Samuels, MD of Furniture Fusion explains:
“We work with clients worldwide, supplying furniture for hotels, bars and restaurants as well as offices and industrial settings. Whatever the sector, we apply a real creative angle to the brief, whether it’s the smallest installation or a major bespoke project. We love to work with like-minded people – architects, interior designers and of course our own staff – who have a true love of design and creativity. That’s what gets me out of bed in the morning, what makes this business exciting and it’s what drives our continued growth.”
The Nene Chair has a minimalist design, with a light frame and clean, streamlined look. A well-priced stackable, polypropylene piece, it’s produced from a single mould so is durable and strong – so far, so practical, but its beauty comes from its simplicity and how it adapts to work in a range of interiors.
