Elderslie St, Winton

Public Furniture Suite

Elderslie St, Winton - Public Furniture Suite

Drawing inspiration from the areas rich history, the comprehensive suite of street furniture was designed to subtly reference unique features of Winton and its surrounding landscapes.  The completely custom suite included; benches, tables, sculptural seating, bin enclosures, bollards, signage and shelters.  All of which were shaped to reflect the area's connections to the aviation industry, it's prehistoric past, abundant bird life and of course, sheep shearing. 

The harsh environmental conditions aided the material and finish palette selection, while special consideration was given to the usability, durability and maintainability of each and every piece.  Solid hardwood timber was combined with strategically folded steel frames to create a sturdy, long lasting product.  Efficient use of material and manufacturing processes were inherently woven into the designs to ensure all items could be supplied on budget and with minimal waste production.
