Take the Metro to Work!

BCFA member Morgan’s inspired furniture collections are created through a passion for design, coupled with skilled craftsmanship, made in Hampshire and displayed in Clerkenwell. As a design led, customer focused, British manufacturer, Morgan are able to provide outstanding quality combined with exceptional value. They look to integrity rather than fashion, for contemporary, balanced and original expressions.

Morgan are enjoying the popularity of their Metro collection within the workplace, we took the opportunity to find out more about three projects where Metro’s versatile, bold and contemporary design perfectly fitted the brief.

Alan Turing Institute – Designed by Morgan Lovell


The Alan Turing Institute, based in the British library, is the national body for data science, named after the scientist who cracked the German Enigma code. Morgan Lovell’s ambition was to design an office that reflected the Institute’s heritage, while ensuring it had a bright space to achieve excellence. The newly refurbished space brings together some of the brightest minds, so it had to be inspirational, collaborative and functional. The dynamic yet peaceful design features Morgan’s Japanese inspired Kyoto linear bench and their contemporary Metro lounge chairs. The new brand is proud, confident and modern – and this is reflected throughout the workspace. Featured Collections : Kyoto and Metro

Creative Quarter, Cardiff – Designed by Insight Architects & Oscar Clarke Design

Clients using the Creative Quarter have access to shared meeting spaces and interaction is centered around The Hub, a communal social space, which provides kitchen facilities and a focal point for informal meetings and presentations.
