Classic represents our origins in 1991, when company director David Shaw applied his strong design principles to street furniture. His vision was to develop products which complement community attitudes and the existing built environment. Our Classic range reflects this attitude. While our Contemporary range represents our current direction.
As specialists in urban design and street furniture, our industrial designers work in collaboration with architects, landscape architects and designers to develop products that cohesively link with client project goals.
Most recently completing work with landscape architects, Gamble McKinnon Green for Brisbane's iconic Southbank, the Liana Lounge is inspired by the Liana vine, a long-stemmed woody vine which is rooted at ground level relying on surrounding structures for support. Following this, the Liana Lounge concept binds a sinuous HDPE clad steel structure to a pre-cast concrete host. The green HDPE vine winds its way across the concrete, creating a vast array of resting positions, encouraging exploration and play. The pre-casting includes water shedding details and accommodates LED lighting transforming the structure by night.
The Liana Lounge was officially open as part of Rain Bank by Queen Elizabeth II during her recent visit.
