Street Furniture

Street furniture is the clandestine star of urban spaces. Rarely recognized at first glance, benches and street lights, fountains and bus stops considerably shape the nature of streets, public squares, and entire cities. In addition to the practical aspects of street furniture, high-quality designs have become the recent focus of attention. The combination of function, ingenious concepts and artistic implementation sheds a totally new light on today’s street furniture. Even though the majority of street furniture is produced in series, unique pieces are an important segment of the genre. These are generally much more conspicuous, intended to highlight a specific location within the urban structure, or match a specific setting.
