01 June - 31 August

By Pebble Haus and supported by Dorado Jewellery, Lane Eight Coffee, Pensaer and Legge Studio.

Noticing the pressure of missing our friends and close ones during the lockdowns, Sobremesa provides a space for interaction where friends can catch up in the most natural way — over a cup of coffee. Sobremesa is the time spent relaxing after a meal to drink coffee, to while away at the table engaged in a relaxing conversation. The bench is made of jesmonite and coffee extracted from residual grounds sourced from local coffee shops, which have suffered a lot during the closure of the City. Pebble Haus invites you to have a cup of coffee, and to enjoy your little piece of sobremesa.

This bench is supported by Pensaer London, Lane Eight Coffee, and Dorado Jewellery.


This bench forms part of the 2021 City Benches, a design competition by the LFA, Cheapside Business Alliance and Aldgate Connect BID, that sees see a playful series of nine benches brightening the streetscape across Cheapside and Aldgate.

To hear Jerry, Andrés and Dominika sharing the story behind their bench, head here.
