This was a project on which the commissioners had very strong opinions and a nearly fully finished design. Xenia Moseley saw herself very much as a facilitator. ‘At first I didn’t see my stamp,’ she said, ‘but then it became very much a meeting of minds.’ During the week at Benchmark, she became involved with the steam bending of the oak – a reason that timber was chosen, since the first choice would have been tulipwood for its lightness; but that is not appropriate for steam bending. For her a lot of the process was seeing the team at Benchmark solving problems – including Sean Sutcliffe getting his apron on the last day to make a tricky joint that allowed the tray table to swivel.
