Wealdstone Youth Workshop is a public design project in collaboration with the youth of Wealdstone, north-west London, to design and make furniture for use in their local community.
Over the last year, six local 17 and 18 year olds – Esther, Kayleigh, Leo, Marina, Marius, and Tanya – have worked with designers Silo Studio to research, design and produce the furniture.
The Wealdstone Leg is their response – a new, modular furniture component, which forms the basis of a range of stools, benches and chairs for use in the forthcoming Wealdstone Square.
The Wealdstone Leg is also available for you to buy, and use as you wish. All proceeds will go back into the project, with the young people receiving a % royalty on each sale.
