Corner, Tate Modern

We were commissioned to design bespoke, handcrafted furniture for Tate Modern’s newly-opened riverside café and bar, Corner, in partnership with Holland Harvey.

Tate Modern's café has been reimagined as Corner, a contemporary space serving seasonal plates and evening tipples on the ground floor of the iconic gallery, with dramatic views across the Thames.

What we made

Celebrating circular design and showcasing the beauty of Britain's native timbers, we made a range of bespoke furniture for the café, including a collection of tables, benches and stools with contemporary, chunky silhouettes, softened by gently rounded edges.

The collection, collaboratively designed by Goldfinger, Tate and Holland Harvey, is now yours to own, in both black and natural ash finishes.

Locally-sourced materials

Crafted from ash trees felled near London to control the spread of ash dieback, each piece proudly bears the GPS coordinates of where the original trees once stood, celebrating the material’s natural heritage.⁠

Sustainable design

We also created a set of round tables, with tabletop panels made by Spared using repurposed waste coffee grinds from the Tate Modern, mixed with landfill material, to create a planet-positive aggregate.

“Our studio’s commitment to social and environmental impact, highlighted by our longstanding collaboration with Goldfinger, aligned with Tate's aspirations for the project. This relationship played a key part in our successful bid, and it's rewarding to see our shared ideals reflected in the finished space.”
