Miles CBD Streetscape
Public Furniture Suite
Miles CBD Streetscape - Public Furniture Suite
Designed to reflect the unique shape of the Bottle Trees prevalent throughout Miles, this custom suite of street furniture was developed for the CBD's revitalisation project. The range included; benches, tables, stools, bin enclosures and bollards - all formed from sheet metal and combined with Spotted Gum, an extremely durable Australian hardwood.
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.
