By Studio Morrison

Studio Morison designed a long gently curving 60-seater picnic bench in the shape of a smile. The idea began in the studio with a bag of coconuts and the old Tommy Cooper joke, “I went to a seafood disco – and pulled a muscle”.  

The coconuts led to a playful form, built, with the recurring funfair motif of the hemisphere of the half coconut propping up stools and popping through tabletops. Tommy Cooper’s joke connects the river and the pearlescent shells set within the unique terrazzo surface of the table and bench surfaces, as well as giving the table it’s joyful smile. 

Seafood Disco is situated across from Pilot Walk along The Tide. It is a place for all to sit, admire the ever-changing Thames, and connect.
