Contemporary public benches

How to choose this product

The contemporary public bench is a key piece of urban furniture. Its lines, materials and colors contribute to shaping the identity of a public space.

Applications

Such benches are found in squares and parks, along avenues and at scenic lookouts. Models with integrated planters can be used to add greenery to public spaces.

Technologies

Benches are made from a variety of materials. Stone and wood models have long been common, but other models use FRP, PVC and similarly modern constituents.

How to choose

Choice of materials and configurations will depend on the nature of the public space to be furnished. The bench should stand up to harsh weather and vandalism while offering a level of comfort suitable for its intended use. Aesthetic and logistic considerations also will influence selection.
