Bob Bob Cite

About This Project


Noble Russell delivers more exceptional furniture for a sparkling new London icon restaurant.


The new Bob Bob Cite is the sister restaurant to the much loved Bob Bob Ricard. Many years in the making, the long-awaited restaurant beautifully reflects the time, effort and dedication put into this project.


Noble Russell supplied banquette seating chairs, and stools back in 2007 to Bob Bob Ricard; the now legendary Soho institution; then bench seating to the refurbishment of the basement at a later date. In the intervening years between then and now, Noble Russell have continued to provide close customer support for the business.

So when owner Leonid Shutov was setting out to build Bob Bob Cite, our quality of manufacture and support made us an easy choice.


Working in close conjunction with Brady Williams Studio and Leonid we developed and manufactured all of the fixed banquette seating in this prestigious new restaurant. These comprised of 64 off two-seater units, 6 off single seater units, 5 off three-seater units, 3 off four-seater units and two off eight-seater bar units.



Noble Russell were asked to develop and manufacture a seating design that not only had the style and high quality required, but also the ability to be easily maintained and renovated with all upholstery being able to be switched for new in the future, and with ease.

In more detail, the seating comprises of separate seat and back pads and upholstered side panels. The design thus allows for easy replacement of pads. The pad design also adds to the design aesthetic. The side panels are fixed into position with decorative snake eye fittings, which are a common theme throughout the interior.
