CITY OF BATH
wooden, cast iron
Factory Furniture were appointed by the Bath City Council to realise some concept designs for a range of new street furniture. The street furniture, using materials such as cast bronze and FSC® hardwood, enables this World Heritage City to express itself as a contemporary urban centre, yet offers the timeless quality for which Bath is renowned.
The brief for this extensive project required various seating elements, cycle stands and bollards not to mention hanging baskets. The specified materials were bronze and FSC® hardwood which complimented each other well. The bronze surfaces were artificially ‘aged’ using an intricate patination process to achieve a much darker tone. The new street furniture has been placed in various locations round the city.
