A lectern for a standing minister or reader is an essential part of the furnishings of a crematorium or chapel. It must be of an appropriate height or adjustable, strong, stable, and with sufficient desk width for large books or tablets. Every Treske lectern is the result of discussion with the client, so that each one also fits within its architectural context and fulfils practical needs. Lecterns are often designed to accommodate sound, lighting, and curtain controls so that the minister can run the service.
Specifically designed sound desks, often involving panelling to match the other furniture and concealed storage for the electronics, are designed for individual requirements.
Treske completed the interior furnishing for Trent Valley Crematorium with the catafalque, lectern, upholstered chair seating, reception desk, sound desk furnishing, as well as furniture, including tables, chairs and display shelving for the meeting rooms.
Treske supplied a new lectern with integrated controls and AV features, redesigned the catafalque base and developed a striking design style for the crematoria furniture. The oak benches with upholstered seats and frontals used the same design as the catafalque and reader.
Crematoria furniture including the reception desk, catafalques for two chapels with seating on curved benches designed especially by Treske, with console tables, flower stands and a lectern with full audio visual and curtain controls installed.
