The Conversation bench highlights the potential of stone and is a contemporary interpretation of a 19th-century courting chair. It is made from interlocking stone offcuts that can be disassembled and reused.

Designed by NVBL with Webb Yates Engineers and The Stone Carving Company for a site next to the Aldgate Pump to advocate the use of stone as a durable and sustainable building material.
