This is part of a commission I’ve been working on for the past month as a result of a business venture I’ve started this year with a partner.
This is one of two pews (the other is longer and only has one kneeler) built for a tiny chapel. Since the room is so small and the client wanted to fit as many people as possible these pews were designed to require minimal space yet remain comfortable.
The seat and back angle use proper anthropometric data so people won’t slide forward while seated. The unusual kneeler design prevents people sitting in the front pew from kicking them down despite the narrow width of the pews. Narrow pews permit 36” spacing between pew to pew without making it too hard to walk between them. Short kneelers make it easier for people to move in and out of the pews even when they are being used by others.
