Royal Botanic Garden Bench
The Holding Bench was commissioned by the MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Society Scotland as part of the After the Storm project at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Many trees were blown down during Cyclone Andrea in 2012. This was followed by a period of change and renewal in the garden and the wood was offered to Scottish furniture makers to create a new collection of furniture (see our Resilience Bench) The MS Society recognised a link with the devastating diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis which will be followed by a period of adjustment and in some cases hope for improvement in the future. Angus was commissioned by the MS Society to create a bench for the garden and we hope it will provide a place where those affected by MS (and others) can sit and relax and perhaps children might play in and through the steam-bent loops forming the and on the bench.
