St. Matthias’ Church Torquay

Project Details

Location: Torquay, UK

This 160 year old church underwent reordering to make it a space that was suitable for the changing needs of its community in the 21st Century. To do that they needed more flexible seating to replace the pews.

The new flexibility along with a  kitchenette enabled them to have  a new large meeting area at the back of church with universal access, and the option of the much larger space of the entire nave available for a whole variety of community uses. A new look to the main entrances with glazes doors to see into the church and let more light along with new storage space was also added.

ICS Solution: This is where the ICON 40 chair and its clever design enabled the client to stack the chairs up to 40 chairs high and be wheeled away into their new storage cupboards when not in use.

“ICS have looked after us very well. The design of the furniture was crucial to the whole project and Gavin took the time to understand our needs and design and deliver the right product for us.  Before production samples were made and brought to us, which was very helpful as we realised our design on the choir seating needed to be adjusted – which was done without any fuss or problem.  I can (and often do when visitors comment on our church) recommend ICS to anyone looking to replace their furniture.  Quality products, bespoke design, and good care of customers – I couldn’t have asked for more.”
